[Linux-ha-dev] 0.4.5f now on web site...
Mon, 11 Oct 1999 00:21:19 -0600
I've uploaded heartbeat 0.4.5f to the download directory of the web site.
The URLs are what you'd expect:
Unless you folks find something wrong with this before Wednesday, this is what I
want in the next release. If you find important new bugs, I'll fix them. I
really mean to ship it this time :-)
Since I'm traveling later in the week, I want to release it by Wednesday AM.
Please give it a good going over.
Here are the fixes since the last beta:
Fix for the problem where the master status process would go
away. This is a long-standing problem -- the one that wouldn't core
Added code to keep memory allocation stats and dump them daily
Added code to cause a heartbeat to be sent sooner after restarting

0.4.5 (this version) IS NOT RELEASED YET!!!
+ Version 0.4.5
+ Mijta Sarp added a new feature to authenticate heartbeat packets
using a variety of strong authentication techniques
+ Changed resource acquisition and relinquishment on heartbeat shutdown to
occur in heartbeat, instead of in the start/stop script. This means you
don't *really* have to use the start/stop script if you don't want to.
+ Added -k option to gracefully shut down current heartbeat instance
+ Added -r option to cause currently running heartbeat to reread config files
+ Added -s option to report on operational status of "heartbeat"
+ Sped up resource acquisition on master restart.
+ Added validation of ipresources file at startup time.
+ Added code to allow the IPaddr takeover script to be given the
interface to take over, instead of inferring it. This was requested
by Lars Marowsky-Bree
+ Incorporated patch from Guenther Thomsen to implement locking for
serial ports used for heartbeats
+ Incorporated patch from Guenther Thomsen to clean up logging.
(you can now use syslog and/or file logs)
+ Improved FreeBSD compatibility.
+ Fixed a bug where the FIFO doesn't get created correctly.
+ Fixed a couple of uninitialized variables in heartbeat and /proc/ha code
+ Fixed longstanding crash bug related to getting a SIGALRM while in malloc
+ Implemented new memory management scheme, including memory stats
