MCTB question: how long do MCTB issue CFOD?

chao

Hi Gurus

 

in MCTB config.xml file,  if without gateway setting, how "CONNECTTIMEOUT" and "CONNTECTRETRIES" work with the filer option cf.takeover.detection.seconds together?   is there a requirement the value "CONNECTTIMEOUT" plus "CONNTECTRETRIES" must be larger than  cf.takeover.detection.seconds?   Or MCTB could detect mailbox status from partner side and avoid to issue CFOD when only controller is down.

 

THX!

Hi TC,

 

The option cf.takeover.detection.seconds is only used by ONTAP when issuing a normal takeover.  MCTB only takes action when ONTAP cannot do a normal takeover, and will only ever issue a CFOD (never a normal takeover).  There is no requirement that (connectTimeout * connectRetries) be greater than cf.takeover.detection.seconds.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.
