NAME
r_properties - resource properties DESCRIPTION
The following information describes the resource properties that are defined by Sun Cluster software. These descriptions have been devel- oped for data service developers. For more information about a particular data service, see the man page for that data service. Note - Scalable, as used in this man page, specifically describes a resource that uses the network load balancing features of Sun Cluster soft- ware. Such a resource also uses the properties Affinity_timeout, Generic_affinity, Load_balancing_policy, Load_balancing_weights, Port_list, UDP_affinity, and Weak_affinity. Some resource types can run on multiple nodes or zones without using network load balancing. The Scalable property for such a resource is set to False, and such a resource does not use the preceding additional properties. Resource Property Values Required The cluster administrator must specify a value when creating a resource with an administrative utility. Optional If the cluster administrator does not specify a value when creating a resource group, the system supplies a default value. Conditional The Resource Group Manager (RGM) creates the property only if the property is declared in the Resource Type Registra- tion (RTR) file. Otherwise, the property does not exist and is not available to the cluster administrator. A condi- tional property that is declared in the RTR file is optional or required, depending on whether a default value is spec- ified in the RTR file. For details, see the description of each conditional property. Query-only Cannot be set directly by an administrative tool. The cluster administrator can edit all tunable properties by using the following command: # clresource set -p property=new-value resource Resource Properties and Descriptions Note - Property names, such as Affinity_timeout and Cheap_probe_interval, are not case sensitive. You can use any combination of uppercase and lowercase letters when you specify property names. Affinity_timeout (integer) Length of time, in seconds, during which connections from a given client IP address for any service in the resource are sent to the same server node or zone. Connections are sent to the same zone provided the scalable service does not use load balancing. If you set this property to -1, all connections are sent to the same node or zone. If you set this property to 0, all open connections are sent to the same node or zone. If you set this property to n, for n number of seconds after the last connection has closed, all new connections are sent to the same node or zone as the last connection. In all cases, if the server node or zone leaves the cluster as a result of a failure, a new server node or zone is selected. This property is relevant only when Load_balancing_policy is either Lb_sticky or Lb_sticky_wild. In addition, Weak_affinity must be set to False (the default value). This property is used only for scalable services. Category Conditional/Optional Default 0 Tunable Any time Cheap_probe_interval (integer) The number of seconds between invocations of a quick fault probe of the resource. This property is only created by the RGM and avail- able to the cluster administrator if this property is declared in the RTR file. This property is optional if a default value is specified in the RTR file. If the Tunable attribute is not specified in the resource- type file, the Tunable value for the property is When_disabled. Category Conditional Default See above Tunable When disabled Extension properties You declare resource-type properties in the RTR file. The RTR file defines the initial configuration of a data service when the cluster administrator registers the data service with Sun Cluster software. For information about the individual attributes that you can set for extension properties, see the property_attributes(5) man page. You can specify that a cluster administrator can set an extension property on a per-node or a per-zone basis or for the entire cluster. However, you cannot specify (in the RTR file) that the cluster administrator can do the same for a system-defined property. System- defined properties implicitly can apply to all nodes or zones or to particular nodes or zones. Whether system-defined properties apply to all or particular nodes or zones depends on the particular definition of the system-defined property. Category Conditional Default No default Tunable Depends on the particular property Failover_mode (enum) Modifies the recovery actions that the RGM takes when a resource fails to start or stop successfully, or when a resource monitor finds a resource to be unhealthy and consequently requests a restart or failover. NONE, SOFT, or HARD (method failures) These settings affect only failover behavior when a start or stop method (Prenet_start, Start, Monitor_stop, Stop, Postnet_stop) fails. The RESTART_ONLY and LOG_ONLY settings can also affect whether the resource monitor can initiate the execution of the scha_controlcommand or the scha_control()function. NONE indicates that the RGM is not to take any recovery action when one of the previously mentioned start or stop methods fails. SOFT or HARD indicates that if a Start or Prenet_start method fails, the RGM is to relocate the resource's group to a different node or zone. For Start or Prenet_start failures, SOFT and HARD are the same. For failure of a stop method (Monitor_stop, Stop, or Postnet_stop), SOFT is the same as NONE. If Failover_mode is set to HARD when one of these stop methods fails, the RGM reboots the node or zone to force the resource group offline. The RGM might then attempt to start the group on another node or zone. RESTART_ONLY or LOG_ONLY Unlike NONE, SOFT, and HARD, which affect failover behavior when a start or stop method fails, RESTART_ONLY and LOG_ONLY affect all failover behavior. Failover behavior includes monitor-initiated (scha_control) restarts of resources and resource groups, and giveovers that are initiated by the resource monitor. RESTART_ONLY indicates that the monitor can run scha_control to restart a resource or a resource group. The RGM allows Retry_count restarts within Retry_interval. If Retry_count is exceeded, no further restarts are permitted. Note - A negative value of Retry_count, which is permitted by some but not all resource types, specifies an unlimited number of resource restarts. A more dependable way to specify unlimited restarts is to do the following: o Set Retry_interval to a small value such as 1 or 0. o Set Retry_count to a large value such as 1000. If the resource type does not declare the Retry_count and Retry_interval properties, an unlimited number of resource restarts is permitted. If Failover_mode is set to LOG_ONLY, no resource restarts or giveovers are permitted. Setting Failover_mode to LOG_ONLY is the same as setting Failover_mode to RESTART_ONLY with Retry_count set to zero. RESTART_ONLY or LOG_ONLY (method failures) If a Prenet_start, Start, Monitor_stop, Stop, or Postnet_stop method fails, RESTART_ONLY and LOG_ONLY are the same as NONE. That is, the data service is not failed over or rebooted. Effect of Failover_mode Settings on a Data Service The effect that each setting for Failover_mode has on a data service depends on whether the data service is monitored or unmon- itored and whether it is based on the Data Services Development Library (DSDL). o A data service is monitored if it implements a Monitor_start method and monitoring of the resource is enabled. The RGM starts a resource monitor by executing the Monitor_start method after starting the resource itself. The resource monitor probes the health of the resource. If the probes fail, the resource monitor might request a restart or a failover by calling the scha_control() function. For DSDL-based resources, probes might reveal partial failure (degradation) or a complete failure of the data service. Repeated partial failures accumulate to a complete failure. o A data service is unmonitored if it does not provide a Monitor_start method or if monitoring of the resource has been disabled. o DSDL-based data services include those that are developed with Agent Builder, through the GDS, or by using the DSDL directly. Some data services, HA Oracle for example, were developed without using the DSDL. NONE, SOFT, or HARD (probe failures) If you set Failover_mode to NONE, SOFT, or HARD, if the data service is a monitored DSDL-based service, and if the probe fails completely, the monitor calls the scha_control() function to request a restart of the resource. If probes continue to fail, the resource is restarted up to a maximum of Retry_count times within Retry_interval. If the probes fail again after the Retry_count number of restarts is reached, the monitor requests a failover of the resource's group to another node or zone. If you set Failover_mode to NONE, SOFT, or HARD and the data service is an unmonitored DSDL-based service, the only failure that is detected is the death of the resource's process tree. If the resource's process tree dies, the resource is restarted. If the data service is a not a DSDL-based service, the restart or failover behavior depends on how the resource monitor is coded. For example, the Oracle resource monitor recovers by restarting the resource or the resource group, or by failing over the resource group. RESTART_ONLY (probe failures) If you set Failover_mode to RESTART_ONLY, if the data service is a monitored DSDL-based service, and if the probe fails com- pletely, the resource is restarted Retry_count times within Retry_interval. However, if Retry_count is exceeded, the resource monitor exits, sets the resource status to FAULTED, and generates the status message "Application faulted, but not restarted. Probe quitting." At this point, although monitoring is still enabled, the resource is effectively unmonitored until it is repaired and restarted by the cluster administrator. If you set Failover_mode to RESTART_ONLY, if the data service is an unmonitored DSDL-based service, and if the process tree dies, the resource is not restarted. If a monitored data service is not DSDL-based, the recovery behavior depends on how the resource monitor is coded. If you set Failover_mode to RESTART_ONLY, the resource or resource group can be restarted by a call to the scha_control() function Retry_count times within Retry_interval. If the resource monitor exceeds Retry_count, the attempt to restart fails. If the mon- itor calls scha_control() to request a failover, that request fails as well. LOG_ONLY (probe failures) If you set Failover_mode to LOG_ONLY for any data service, all scha_control() requests to restart the resource or resource group or to fail over the group are precluded. If the data service is DSDL-based, a message is logged when a probe completely fails, but the resource is not restarted. If a probe fails completely more than Retry_count times within Retry_interval, the resource monitor exits, sets the resource status to FAULTED, and generates the status message "Application faulted, but not restarted. Probe quitting." At this point, although monitoring is still enabled, the resource is effectively unmonitored until it is repaired and restarted by the cluster administrator. If you set Failover_mode to LOG_ONLY, if the data service is an unmonitored DSDL-based service, and if the process tree dies, a message is logged but the resource is not restarted. If a monitored data service is not DSDL-based, the recovery behavior depends on how the resource monitor is coded. If you set Failover_mode to LOG_ONLY, all scha_control() requests to restart the resource or resource group or to fail over the group fail. Category Optional Default NONE Tunable Any time Load_balancing_policy (string) A string that defines the load-balancing policy in use. This property is used only for scalable services. The RGM automatically creates this property if the Scalable property is declared in the RTR file. Load_balancing_policy can take the following values: o Lb_weighted (the default). The load is distributed among various nodes according to the weights set in the Load_balanc- ing_weights property. o Lb_sticky. The set of ports is known at the time the application resources are configured. A given client (identified by the client's IP address) of the scalable service is always sent to the same node of the cluster. o Lb_sticky_wild. The port numbers are not known in advance but are dynamically assigned. A given client (identified by the client's IP address) that connects to an IP address of a wildcard sticky service is always sent to the same cluster node regardless of the port number to which that IP address is coming. Category Conditional/Optional Default Lb_weighted Tunable At creation Load_balancing_weights (string_array) For scalable resources only. The RGM automatically creates this property if the Scalable property is declared in the RTR file. The format is weight@node,weight@node..., where weight is an integer that reflects the relative portion of load distributed to the specified node. The fraction of load distributed to a node is the weight for this node divided by the sum of all weights. For example, 1@1,3@2 specifies that node 1 receives 1/4 of the load and node 2 receives 3/4. The empty string (""), the default, sets a uniform distribution. Any node that is not assigned an explicit weight receives a default weight of 1. You can specify weight 0 to assign no load to a node. If the Tunable attribute is not specified in the resource-type file, the Tunable value for the property is Anytime. Changing this property revises the distribution for new connections only. Category Conditional/Optional Default Null Tunable Any time method_timeout for each callback method (integer) A time lapse, in seconds, after which the RGM concludes that an invocation of the method has failed. Note - You cannot specify a maximum value for a method timeout (using the Max attribute). Likewise, you cannot specify a minimum value of zero (Min=0). Category Conditional/Optional Default 3,600 (one hour) if the method itself is declared in the RTR file Tunable Any time Monitored_switch (enum) You cannot directly set this property. Rather, it is set to Enabled or to Disabled by the RGM, either on a particular node or zone or for the entire cluster. The RGM does so if the cluster administrator enables or disables the monitor with an administrative utility, either on a particular node or zone or for the entire cluster. If disabled, the Monitor_start method is not called on the resource until monitoring is enabled again. If the resource does not have a monitor callback method, this property evaluates to Disabled. Category Query-only Default Enabled, if the resource type has monitoring methods, disabled otherwise Tunable See the description Network_resources_used (string_array) A list of logical-hostname or shared-address resources on which this resource has a dependency. This list contains all network- address resources that appear in the properties Resource_dependencies, Resource_dependencies_weak, Resource_dependencies_restart, or Resource_dependencies_offline_restart. The RGM automatically creates this property if the Scalable property is declared in the RTR file. If the Scalable property is not declared in the RTR file, Network_resources_used is unavailable unless it is explicitly declared in the RTR file. If you do not assign a value to the Network_resources_used property, its value is updated automatically by the RGM, based on the setting of the resource-dependencies properties. You do not need to set this property directly. Instead, set the Resource_depen- dencies, Resource_dependencies_offline_restart, Resource_dependencies_restart, or Resource_dependencies_weak property. To maintain compatibility with earlier releases of Sun Cluster software, you can still set the value of the Network_resources_used property directly. If you set the value of the Network_resources_used property directly, the value of the Network_resources_used property is no longer derived from the settings of the resource-dependencies properties. If you add a resource name to the Net- work_resources_used property, the resource name is automatically added to the Resource_dependencies property as well. The only way to remove that dependency is to remove it from the Network_resources_used property. If you are not sure whether a network-resource dependency was originally added to the Resource_dependencies property or to the Network_resources_used property, remove the depen- dency from both properties. For example, the following command removes a dependency of resource r1 upon network resource r2, regardless of whether the dependency was added to the Network_resources_used or Resource_dependencies property: # clresource set -p Network_resources_used-=r2 -p Resource_dependencies-=r2 r1 Category Conditional/Optional Default The empty list Tunable Any time Num_resource_restarts on each cluster node or zone (integer) The number of restart requests that have occurred on this resource within the past n seconds, where n is the value of the Retry_interval property. A restart request is any of the following calls: o The scha_control command with the RESOURCE_RESTART argument o The scha_control() function with the SCHA_RESOURCE_RESTART argument o The scha_control command with the RESOURCE_IS_RESTARTED argument o The scha_control() function with the SCHA_RESOURCE_IS_RESTARTED argument The RGM resets the restart counter to zero for a given resource on a given node or zone whenever that resource executes one of the following: o The scha_control command with the GIVEOVER argument o The scha_control() function with the SCHA_GIVEOVER argument The counter is reset whether the giveover attempt succeeds or fails. If a resource type does not declare the Retry_interval property, the Num_resource_restarts property is not available for resources of that type. Category Query-only Default No default Tunable See description Num_rg_restarts on each cluster node or zone (integer) The number of resource-group restart requests that have occurred for this resource within the past n seconds, where n is the value of the Retry_interval property. A resource-group restart request is either of the following calls: o The scha_control command with the RESTART argument o The scha_control() function with the SCHA_RESTART argument If a resource type does not declare the Retry_interval property, the Num_rg_restarts property is not available for resources of that type. Category Query-only Default No default Tunable See description On_off_switch (enum) You cannot directly set this property. Rather, it is set to Enabled or to Disabled by the RGM, either on a particular node or zone or for the entire cluster. The RGM does so if the cluster administrator enables or disables the monitor with an administrative utility, either on a particular node or zone or for the entire cluster. If disabled, a resource has no callbacks invoked until it is enabled again. Category Query-only Default Disabled Tunable See description Port_list (string_array) A comma-separated list of port numbers on which the server is listening. Appended to each port number is a slash (/) followed by the protocol that is being used by that port, for example, Port_list=80/tcp or Port_list=80/tcp6,40/udp6. Possible protocols that you can specify include: o tcp, for only TCP IPv4 o tcp6, for both TCP IPv4 and TCP IPv6 o udp, for only UDP IPv4 o udp6, for both UDP IPv4 and UDP IPv6 If the Scalable property is declared in the RTR file, the RGM automatically creates Port_list. Otherwise, this property is unavail- able unless it is explicitly declared in the RTR file. Setting up this property for use with Sun Cluster HA for Apache is described in the Sun Cluster Data Service for Apache Guide for Solaris OS. Category Conditional/Required Default No default Tunable Any time R_description (string) A brief description of the resource. Category Optional Default The empty string Tunable Any time Resource_dependencies (string_array) A list of resources in the same or in different groups upon which this resource has a strong dependency. This resource cannot be started if the start of any resource in the list fails. If this resource and one of the resources in the list start at the same time, the RGM waits until the resource in the list starts before the RGM starts this resource. If the resource in this resource's Resource_dependencies list does not start (for example, if the resource group for the resource in the list remains offline or if the resource in the list is in a Start_failed state), this resource also remains offline. If this resource remains offline because of a dependency on a resource in a different resource group that fails to start, this resource's group enters a Pend- ing_online_blocked state. If this resource is brought offline at the same time as those in the list, this resource stops before those in the list. However, if this resource remains online or fails to stop, a resource in the list stops anyway. By default in a resource group, application resources have an implicit strong resource dependency on network address resources. Implicit_network_dependencies in the rg_properties(5) man page contains more information. Within a resource group, Prenet_start methods are run in dependency order before Start methods. Postnet_stop methods are run in dependency order after Stop methods. In different resource groups, the dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to finish Prenet_start and Start before it runs Prenet_start. The depended-on resource waits for the dependent resource to finish Stop and Postnet_stop before it runs Stop. To specify the scope of a dependency, append the following qualifiers, including the braces ({ }), to the resource name when you specify this property. {LOCAL_NODE} Limits the specified dependency to a per-node basis. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource only on the same node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on the same node. The situation is similar for stopping and restarting. {ANY_NODE} Extends the specified dependency to any node. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource on any node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on any primary node before it starts itself. The situ- ation is similar for stopping and restarting. {FROM_RG_AFFINITIES} Specifies that the scope of the resource dependency is derived from the RG_affinities relationship of the resource groups to which the resources belong. If the dependent resource's group has a positive affinity for the depended-on resource's resource group, and they are starting or stopping on the same node, the dependency is {LOCAL_NODE}. If no such positive affinity exists, or if the groups are starting on different nodes, the dependency is {ANY_NODE}. Resource dependencies between two resources that are located in the same resource group are always {LOCAL_NODE}. If you do not specify a qualifier, FROM_RG_AFFINITIES is used by default. Category Optional Default The empty list Tunable Any time Resource_dependencies_offline_restart (string_array) A list of resources in the same or in different groups on which the Resource_dependencies_offline_restart resource has an offline- restart dependency. This property works just as Resource_dependencies does, except that, if any resource in the offline-restart dependency list is stopped, this resource is stopped. If that resource in the offline-restart dependency list is subsequently restarted, this resource is restarted. This resource cannot be started if the start of any resource in the list fails. If this resource and one of the resources in the list start at the same time, the RGM waits until the resource in the list starts before the RGM starts this resource. If the resource in this resource's Resource_dependencies list does not start (for example, if the resource group for the resource in the list remains offline or if the resource in the list is in a Start_failed state), this resource also remains offline. If this resource remains offline because of a dependency on a resource in a different resource group that fails to start, this resource's group enters a Pending_online_blocked state. If this resource is brought offline at the same time as those in the list, this resource stops before those in the list. However, if this resource remains online or fails to stop, a resource in the list stops anyway. If a fault occurs on a "depended-on" resource on a node or zone, and the resource cannot recover, the RGM brings that resource on that node or zone offline. The RGM also brings all of the depended-on resource's offline-restart dependents offline by triggering a restart on them. When the cluster administrator resolves the fault and reenables the depended-on resource, the RGM brings the depended-on resource's offline-restart dependents back online as well. To specify the scope of a dependency, append the following qualifiers, including the braces ({ }), to the resource name when you specify this property. {LOCAL_NODE} Limits the specified dependency to a per-node basis. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource only on the same node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on the same node. The situation is similar for stopping and restarting. {ANY_NODE} Extends the specified dependency to any node. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource on any node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on any primary node before it starts itself. The situ- ation is similar for stopping and restarting. {FROM_RG_AFFINITIES} Specifies that the scope of the resource dependency is derived from the RG_affinities relationship of the resource groups to which the resources belong. If the dependent resource's group has a positive affinity for the depended-on resource's resource group, and they are starting or stopping on the same node, the dependency is {LOCAL_NODE}. If no such positive affinity exists, or if the groups are starting on different nodes, the dependency is {ANY_NODE}. Resource dependencies between two resources that are located in the same resource group are always {LOCAL_NODE}. If you do not specify a qualifier, FROM_RG_AFFINITIES is used by default. Category Optional Default The empty list Tunable Any time Resource_dependencies_restart (string_array) A list of resources in the same or in different groups upon which this resource has an restart dependency. This property works just as Resource_dependencies does, except that, if any resource in the restart dependency list is restarted, this resource is restarted. The restart of this resource occurs after the resource in the list comes back online. This resource cannot be started if the start of any resource in the list fails. If this resource and one of the resources in the list start at the same time, the RGM waits until the resource in the list starts before the RGM starts this resource. If the resource in this resource's Resource_dependencies_restart list does not start (for example, if the resource group for the resource in the list remains offline or if the resource in the list is in a Start_failed state), this resource remains offline. If this resource remains offline because of a dependency on a resource in a different resource group that fails to start, this resource's group enters a Pending_online_blocked state. If this resource is brought offline at the same time as those in the list, this resource stops before those in the list. However, if this resource remains online or fails to stop, a resource in the list stops anyway. Within a resource group, Prenet_start methods are run in dependency order before Start methods. Postnet_stop methods are run in dependency order after Stop methods. In different resource groups, the dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to finish Prenet_start and Start before it runs Prenet_start. The depended-on resource waits for the dependent resource to finish Stop and Postnet_stop before it runs Stop. To specify the scope of a dependency, append the following qualifiers, including the braces ({ }), to the resource name when you specify this property. {LOCAL_NODE} Limits the specified dependency to a per-node basis. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource only on the same node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on the same node. The situation is similar for stopping and restarting. {ANY_NODE} Extends the specified dependency to any node. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource on any node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on any primary node before it starts itself. The situ- ation is similar for stopping and restarting. {FROM_RG_AFFINITIES} Specifies that the scope of the resource dependency is derived from the RG_affinities relationship of the resource groups to which the resources belong. If the dependent resource's group has a positive affinity for the depended-on resource's resource group, and they are starting or stopping on the same node, the dependency is {LOCAL_NODE}. If no such positive affinity exists, or if the groups are starting on different nodes, the dependency is {ANY_NODE}. Resource dependencies between two resources that are located in the same resource group are always {LOCAL_NODE}. If you do not specify a qualifier, FROM_RG_AFFINITIES is used by default. Category Optional Default The empty list Tunable Any time Resource_dependencies_weak (string_array) A list of resources in the same or in different groups upon which this resource has a weak dependency. A weak dependency determines the order of method calls within the group. The RGM calls the Start methods of the resources in this list before the Start method of this resource. The RGM calls the Stop methods of this resource before the Stop methods of those in the list. The resource can still start if those in the list fail to start or remain offline. If this resource and a resource in its Resource_dependencies_weak list start concurrently, the RGM waits until the resource in the list starts before the RGM starts this resource. If the resource in the list does not start (for example, if the resource group for the resource in the list remains offline or the resource in the list is in a Start_failed state), this resource starts. This resource's resource group might enter a Pending_online_blocked state temporarily as resources in the this resource's Resource_dependencies_weak list start. When all resources in the list have started or failed to start, this resource starts and its group re-enters the Pending_online state. If this resource is brought offline at the same time as those in the list, this resource stops before those in the list. However, if this resource remains online or fails to stop, a resource in the list stops anyway. Within a resource group, Prenet_start methods are run in dependency order before Start methods. Postnet_stop methods are run in dependency order after Stop methods. In different resource groups, the dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to finish Prenet_start and Start before it runs Prenet_start. The depended-on resource waits for the dependent resource to finish Stop and Postnet_stop before it runs Stop. To specify the scope of a dependency, append the following qualifiers, including the braces ({ }), to the resource name when you specify this property. {LOCAL_NODE} Limits the specified dependency to a per-node basis. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource only on the same node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on the same node. The situation is similar for stopping and restarting. {ANY_NODE} Extends the specified dependency to any node. The behavior of the dependent is affected by the depended-on resource on any node. The dependent resource waits for the depended-on resource to start on any primary node before it starts itself. The situ- ation is similar for stopping and restarting. {FROM_RG_AFFINITIES} Specifies that the scope of the resource dependency is derived from the RG_affinities relationship of the resource groups to which the resources belong. If the dependent resource's group has a positive affinity for the depended-on resource's resource group, and they are starting or stopping on the same node, the dependency is {LOCAL_NODE}. If no such positive affinity exists, or if the groups are starting on different nodes, the dependency is {ANY_NODE}. Resource dependencies between two resources that are located in the same resource group are always {LOCAL_NODE}. If you do not specify a qualifier, FROM_RG_AFFINITIES is used by default. Category Optional Default The empty list Tunable Any time Resource_name (string) The name of the resource instance. Must be unique within the cluster configuration and cannot be changed after a resource has been created. Category Required Default No default Tunable Never Resource_project_name (string) The Solaris project name (see projects(1)) associated with the resource. Use this property to apply Solaris resource management features such as CPU shares and resource pools to cluster data services. When the RGM brings resources online, it launches the related processes under this project name. If this property is not specified, the project name will be taken from the RG_project_name property of the resource group that contains the resource (see the rg_properties(5) man page). If neither property is specified, the RGM uses the predefined project name default. The specified project name must exist in the projects database (see the projects(1) man page and System Administration Guide: Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Solaris Zones). This property is supported starting with the Solaris 9 release. Note - Changes to this property take affect the next time the resource is started. Category Optional Default Null Tunable Any time Valid value Any valid Solaris project name, or null Resource_state on each cluster node or zone (enum) The RGM-determined state of the resource on each cluster node or zone. Possible states include: Online, Offline, Start_failed, Stop_failed, Monitor_failed, Online_not_monitored, Starting, and Stopping. Online The starting methods (Prenet_start, Start, and Monitor_start) have executed successfully on the resource on this node or zone. Offline The resource has not yet started for the first time on this node or zone, or the stopping methods (Monitor_stop, Stop, and Postnet_stop, as applicable to the particular resource) have executed successfully on the resource on this node or zone. Start_failed A Prenet_start or Start method failed on the resource on this node or zone. Start_failed means that the method exited with a nonzero exit status or timed out. The service that is represented by the resource might or might not actually have started on this node or zone. Stop_failed A Monitor_stop, Stop, or Postnet_stop method failed on the resource on this node or zone. Stop_failed means that the method exited with a nonzero exit status or timed out. The service that is represented by the resource might or might not actually have stopped on this node or zone. When a resource enters this state, the resource-group state becomes Error_stop_failed and requires you to intervene. Error_stop_failed is described in more detail in the rg_properties(5) man page. Monitor_failed The resource successfully executed its Prenet_start or Start methods (as applicable to the specific resource type). However, the resources' Monitor_start method exited with a nonzero exit status or timed out. The resource monitor might or might not actually have started on this node or zone. Online_not_monitored The resource successfully executed its Prenet_start or Start methods (as applicable to the specific resource type). The Moni- tor_start method has not yet been executed on the resource. A resource that is unmonitored (that is, for which there is no Monitor_start method, or for which monitoring has been disabled) remains in this state when the resource group goes to Online state. Starting The resource is running the Prenet_start or Start method in an attempt to go online. Stopping The resource is running the Start or Postnet_stop method in an attempt to go offline. You cannot configure this property. Category Query-only Default No default Tunable Never Retry_count (integer) The number of times a monitor attempts to restart a resource if it fails. If the Retry_count is exceeded, depending on the particu- lar data service and the setting of the Failover_mode property, the monitor might do one of the following: o Allow the resource group to remain on the current primary, even though the resource is in a faulted state o Request a failover of the resource group onto a different node or zone This property is created by the RGM and is made available to the cluster administrator only if this property is declared in the RTR file. This property is optional if a default value is specified in the RTR file. If the Tunable attribute is not specified in the resource-type file, the Tunable value for the property is When_disabled. If you specify a negative value for this property, the monitor attempts to restart the resource an unlimited number of times. Note - Some resource types do not allow you to set Retry_count to a negative value. A more dependable way to specify unlimited restarts is to do the following: o Set Retry_interval to a small value such as 1 or 0. o Set Retry_count to a large value such as 1000. Category Conditional Default See above Tunable When disabled Retry_interval (integer) The number of seconds in which to count attempts to restart a failed resource. The resource monitor uses this property in conjunc- tion with Retry_count. This property is created by the RGM and made available to the cluster administrator only if it is declared in the RTR file. This property is optional if a default value is specified in the RTR file. If the Tunable attribute is not specified in the resource-type file, the Tunable value for the property is When_disabled. Note - If the Retry_interval property is not declared, the call to scha_resource_get (num_*_restarts) fails with exit 13 (SCHA_ERR_RT). Category Conditional Default See above Tunable When disabled Scalable (boolean) Indicates whether the resource is scalable, that is, whether the resource uses the networking load balancing features of Sun Clus- ter software. If this property is declared in the RTR file, the RGM automatically creates the following scalable service properties for resources of that type: Affinity_timeout, Load_balancing_policy, Load_balancing_weights, Network_resources_used, Port_list, UDP_affinity, and Weak_affinity. These properties have their default values unless they are explicitly declared in the RTR file. The default for Scalable, when it is declared in the RTR file, is True. If this property is declared in the RTR file, it is not permitted to be assigned a Tunable attribute other than At_creation. If this property is not declared in the RTR file, the resource is not scalable, you cannot tune this property, and no scalable ser- vice properties are set by the RGM. However, you can explicitly declare the Network_resources_used and Port_list properties in the RTR file, if you want, because these properties can be useful in a non-scalable service as well as in a scalable service. You use the Scalable resource property in combination with the Failover resource-type property, as follows: Failover Scalable Description -------------------------------------------------------------- True True Do not specify this illogi- cal combination. True False Specify this combination for a failover service. False True Specify this combination for a scalable service that uses a SharedAddress resource for network load balancing.The Sun Cluster Concepts Guide for Solaris OS describes SharedAddress in more detail.You can con- figure a scalable resource group to run in a non- global zone. But, do not configure a scalable resource to run in multiple non-global zones on the same node. False False Use this combination to configure a multi-master service that does not use network load balancing.You can use a scalable service of this type in zones. The description for the Failover resource-type property in the rt_properties(5) man page contains additional information. Category Optional Default See above Tunable At creation Status on each cluster node or zone (enum) Set by the resource monitor. Possible values are: Online, Degraded, Faulted, Unknown, and Offline. The RGM sets the value to Online when the resource is started, if it is not already set by the Start (or Prenet_start) method. The RGM sets the value to Offline when the resource is stopped, if it is not already set by the Stop (or Postnet_stop) method. Category Query-only Default No default Tunable Only by using the scha_resource_setstatus command Status_msg on each cluster node or zone (string) Set by the resource monitor at the same time as the Status property. The RGM sets it to the empty string when the resource is brought Offline, if it was not already set by the Stop (or Postnet_stop) method. Category Query-only Default No default Tunable Only by using the scha_resource_setstatus Thorough_probe_interval (integer) The number of seconds between invocations of a high-overhead fault probe of the resource. This property is created by the RGM and available to the cluster administrator only if it is declared in the RTR file. This property is optional if a default value is specified in the RTR file. If the Tunable attribute is not specified in the resource-type file, the Tunable value for the property is When_disabled. Category Conditional Default No default Tunable When disabled Type (string) An instance's resource type. Category Required Default No default Tunable Never Type_version (string) Specifies which version of the resource type is currently associated with this resource. The RGM automatically creates this prop- erty, which cannot be declared in the RTR file. The value of this property is equal to the RT_version property of the resource's type. When a resource is created, the Type_version property is not specified explicitly, though it may appear as a suffix of the resource-type name. When a resource is edited, the Type_version may be changed to a new value. Category See above Default None Tunable Tunability is derived from the following: o The current version of the resource type. o The #$upgrade_from directive in the resource-type registration file (see the rt_reg(4) man page). UDP_affinity (boolean) If true, all UDP traffic from a given client is sent to the same server node that currently handles all TCP traffic for the client. This property is relevant only when Load_balancing_policy is either Lb_sticky or Lb_sticky_wild. In addition, Weak_affinity must be set to FALSE (the default value). This property is only used for scalable services. Category Conditional/Optional Default False Tunable When disabled Weak_affinity (boolean) If true, enable the weak form of the client affinity. This allows connections from a given client to be sent to the same server node except when a server listener starts (for example, due to a fault monitor restart, a resource failover or switchover, or a node rejoining a cluster after failing) or when load_balancing_weights for the scalable resource changes due to an administration action. Weak affinity provides a low overhead alternative to the default form, both in terms of memory consumption and processor cycles. This property is relevant only when Load_balancing_policy is either Lb_sticky or Lb_sticky_wild. This property is only used for scalable services.
