Verifies that a suspected member is really dead by pinging that member once again. Drops suspect message if member does respond. Tries to minimize false suspicions.
The protocol works as follows: it catches SUSPECT events traveling up the stack. Verifies that the suspected member is really dead. If yes, passes SUSPECT event up the stack, otherwise discards it. Has to be placed somewhere above the FD layer and below the GMS layer (receiver of the SUSPECT event). Note that SUSPECT events may be reordered by this protocol.
|bind_addr||Interface for ICMP pings. Used if use_icmp is true|
|bind_interface_str||The interface (NIC) which should be used by this transport|
|id||Give the protocol a different ID if needed so we can have multiple instances of it in the same stack|
|level||Sets the logger level (see javadocs)|
|name||Give the protocol a different name if needed so we can have multiple instances of it in the same stack|
|num_msgs||Number of verify heartbeats sent to a suspected member|
|stats||Determines whether to collect statistics (and expose them via JMX). Default is true|
|timeout||Number of millisecs to wait for a response from a suspected member|
|use_icmp||Use InetAddress.isReachable() to verify suspected member instead of regular messages|
