daemon regularly sends out IPMI pings to determine if nodes have
functioning IPMI interfaces or not. It is primarily used to determine
those nodes in the cluster that are not functioning properly, allowing
IPMI commands to be executed across the cluster faster by skipping those
nodes that would automatically timeout.
daemon must be configured using the
configuration file. Until
hosts to be pinged are configured,
will not function properly.
