This protocol verifies whether a suspected member is really dead by pinging that member once again. This verification is performed by the coordinator of the cluster. The suspected member is dropped from the cluster group if confirmed to be dead. The aim of this protocol is to minimize false suspicions. Here's an example.

<VERIFY_SUSPECT timeout="1500"
	down_thread="false" up_thread="false"/>

The available attributes in the FD_SOCK element are listed below.

  • timeout specifies how long to wait for a response from the suspected member before considering it dead.
