I have configured corosync cluster with few recources.

There is custom systemd service 'jira' and systemctl corectly returns its status.

QUESTION: How can I configure corosync to respect failed systemd service?

The crm status claims the resource is started even when service jira status sees it is inactive

I don't see anything useful in logs.

root@vjira1-testing.prg01~# crm status
Stack: corosync
Current DC: vjira1-testing (version 1.1.16-94ff4df) - partition with quorum
Last updated: Tue Dec  5 13:51:42 2017
Last change: Tue Dec  5 12:21:17 2017 by hacluster via crmd on vjira2-testing

2 nodes configured
5 resources configured

Online: [ vjira1-testing vjira2-testing ]

The pacemaker resource couldn't get the current status of the service because I missed the monitor operation.

op monitor interval=20

Unfortunately I did not find useful documentation on it nor the systemd resource agent implementation. I would appreciate any links.

The working primitive configuration from crm configure show is:

 primitive service_jira systemd:jira \
    op start interval=0 timeout=60 \
    op stop interval=0 timeout=90 \
    op monitor interval=10 \
    meta target-role=Started

I have got a link from there you can correlate op monitor interval parameter to how to use it.

Else, there is one more way to get a short description how to use it, here is an example.

[root@cp2 ~]# crm
crm(live)# ra meta systemd:postfix
systemd unit file for postfix (systemd:postfix)

Postfix Mail Transport Agent

Operations' defaults (advisory minimum):

    start         timeout=100
    stop          timeout=100
    status        timeout=100
    monitor       timeout=100 interval=60
  • I consider systemd units and LSB scripts run from pacemaker more a work-around rather than a solution: Both lack metadata documentation and the ability to configure resource parameters (other than action timeouts and intervals).
