[Pacemaker] Question on logd

Thanks for the response Andrew.

I have:
Installed, but there is no /usr/share/doc/glue*  directory at all. Forgot to mention I did an 'updatedb && locate ha_logd.cf' on my systems and this example file is just plain not present anywhere. I checked my current repositories and there is no mention of any other cluster-glue packages (ie: there is no cluster-glue-docs*.rpm) available.

I will setup based on the listing you provided. One other thing I would like to mention just so it's out there: there is a /etc/init.d/logd but by default after install it is not ready to use. I had to: 'chkconfig --add logd'  before I could get it to come up at boot. Shouldn't this have been done as part of the installation from rpm?? There was a time not too long ago when I had to do the same for heartbeat, but that appears to have been fixed in the 3.0.1-1 version I use now.

All the documentation suggests that I can find a sample config file with the other heartbeat docs (/usr/share/docs/heartbeat-3.0.1 in my case), but this file does not exist on my systems (have 3 clusters up and running - it's not on any of them). I dig all kinds of web searches today and I cannot locate listing of how this file needs to be setup. Can someone help point me in the right direction here? Over and over the docs recommend that you use logd on over the old system of individual log, and debug  files, but I can't start logd without a config!!
