My keepalived VIP on one of my routers stopped responding. I still saw it on the primary router and not the secondary router as I would expect, and I could ping the regular IPs. As soon as I restarted keepalived the problem was resolved.
I am not really sure what is causing this issue, are there any log level directives I could add to my keepalived that might give me some information if this happens again?
I do see:
keepalived -f /usr/local/etc/keepalived.conf --dont-fork --log-console --log-detail These options will stop keepalived from fork'ing, and will provide additional logging data. Using these options is especially useful when you are testing out new configuration directives, or debugging an issue with an existing configuration file.
So maybe I just need to edit my init file? Seems like it should be a config file option though.
