I don't think I know how to do that. All I changed though was a ping resource that wasn't (yet) in use so I can't see that too much could have changed.

crm status says:

I'm not sure how many is considered a lot, but I can't think that 81 would rate very highly.

I plan on doing a bit more testing on the weekend to see if I can find a bit more information about exactly what is going on, otherwise any bug report is going to be a bit vague.
