Unless we don't see a really strong use-case this is not very likely to
happen I guess ...

Currently the processes running the alert-agents are spawned from
So if a resource is not to be started/stopped on a particular node and
this node is
not the DC this type of information is - at the moment - not passing by the
crmd on this node.
Broadcasting this information to all nodes (no IP broadcast used by
corosync at
least by default) would mean an enormous increase of cluster-communication.
Thus it rather would have to be done just for certain resources based on
And that would mean quite some implementation-effort - at least without a
smart idea ;-)

I don't exactly know what you are doing but having a dependent, cloned not
colocated resource, where you put your stuff into the RA, might be suitable
for your scenario. The clones would be started after start of the to be
observed resource and they would be stopped prior to stopping it.
You wouldn't see immediately on which node it would be to happen but you
could still use 'crm_resource --resource myResource --locate' to tell you.
