I have just released MCTB 2.4.0. This release uses a new algorithm which defers the TCP connection test, happening only when all other criteria for CFOD have already been met. This will speed cycle time and reduce the number of TCP sockets used during each polling cycle (which Windows systems can have difficulty with). Also included is an improved method for avoiding false CFODs during normal giveback operations. Improvements to logging and other areas have also been made. This release has been thoroughly tested in the lab. As always, please post any questions or issues to this forum.
The software is available on the utility tool chest: http://support.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/mctb/

I have some questions related to 3 parameters: “POLLINGINTERVAL”, “CONNECTTIMEOUT”, “CONNECTRETRIES”.
IHAC tried to check takeover time under different settings of these parameters. They use “ping” to ping filer IP address and check how much package lost before the client receives feedbacks again.
According to our understanding, the smaller these parameters, the quicker the takeover will be.
But from the testing results, it seems the takeover time doesn’t related to these 3 parameters?
Thanks a lot,
