Clustering MP - Node State Monitor RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a client that wants to know the exact state of the Cluster Node when they get an  get an alert from the Node State Monitor.  I see this information in the alert context:

    Date and Time: 1/5/2016 3:33:40 PM 
    Property Name Property Value 
    __CLASS MSCluster_EventStateChange 
    __DERIVATION  
    __GENUS 2 
    __PROPERTY_COUNT 7 
    EventNewState 0 
    EventObjectName SERVERNAME 
    EventObjectPath MSCluster_Node.Name="SERVERNAME" 
    EventObjectType 2 
    EventTypeMajor 0 
    EventTypeMinor 1 
    TIME_CREATED 131043683820495693 

    Do GENUS 2 and PROPERTY_COUNT 7 correlate to a node state?

    Thank you,

    Chad Myers

  • Hello,

    Cluster node status have three type: Up, Down, Paused. As far as I know Node State Monitor have three health state for those three status:

    Node up Success  
    Node paused/joining Warning  
    Node down Error

    If you want to know the cluster node state, you can use Get-ClusterNode command also.

  • That's WMI information being returned from the agent.

    Genus - A numeric value indicating whether the object is a class (1) or an instance (0)

    Property_Count - The number of properties presented by the class. Seven in this case; EventNewState, EventObjectName, EventObjectPath, EventObjectType,  EventTypeMajor, EventTypeMinor, and TIME_CREATED.

    See the following source info on that: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394584(v=vs.85).aspx
