I have not been able to configure the PING and FD intervals. PING is occuring every 2 s and FD every 2 seconds. We are only running 2 machines in the cluster. The coordinator is constantly firing a FIND_INITIAL_MBRS PING which is adding and excessive load to our network traffic.
We have tried setting PING timeout=6000000 to increase the interval of the ping from 2 seconds, however this did not work.
We have also upped the VERIFY_SUSPECT timeout to 6000000 in order to limit the number of FDs but this did not work either.
Can anyone give me a hint on limiting the number of PINGS and FDs to reduce network traffic.
This is caused by MERGE2, *not* PING or FD
