NAME fence_virtd - Fencing host for virtual machines
DESCRIPTION fence_virtd is a host daemon designed to route fencing requests for virtual machines.
Fence_virt and fence_xvm talk to fence_virtd, which supports multiple backend plugins, including: - libvirt for single-node operation - Cluster Checkpoints when using Linux-cluster release 3.0.0 or later - libvirt-qpid for multi-node, non-cluster operation
For compatibility, fence_xvm from linux-cluster release 2 may talk to fence_virtd.
fence_virtd accepts a few options on the command line, but most options are read from fence_virtd.conf.
PARAMETERS -d Specify debug level, e.g. "-d99"
-c Interactively prompt user for configuration information
-f Specify an alternate configuration file instead of /etc/fence_virtd.conf
-F Do not fork into background after starting (overrides any set- ting in fence_virtd.conf)
-w Wait for backend to be available (overrides any setting in fence_virtd.conf)
