Is there an error log on the Load Balancer? What is the load balancer? A commercial LB (F5)? nginx? Cheers

comment Help me understand mk-heartbeat
@betch "Does the heartbeat table need to be replicating to the slave? Is that what I'm missing?" I'm pretty sure the heartbeat table does need to be replicated to the slave and my further testing seems to bear that out. Oddly though, in all the docs and slides I found on the interweb nowhere is that explicitly stated.

comment Help me understand mk-heartbeat
@cagenut, thanks again. I understand what you're saying. The biggest gap in my understanding though (and I see I'm not alone in this as betch seems to fallen into the trap as well) is whether the heartbeat table is replicated or not. The docs seem to mislead on this point i.e. "replication delay monitoring system that doesn't require the slave to be working" but I think I've come to understand that as: when the slave isn't working (stop slave) mk-heartbeat continues to --monitor but it'll just increment by one second. Most important thing to clarify: is the heartbeat table replicated?

@cagenut, thanks for your response but I'm still not 100% clear on this. Are you replicating maatkit.heartbeat to your cacti server in your example? If not, what is being --monitor[ed]?
