The system reports clusterd logs heartbeat check messages at log level info, similar to the following. -- info clusterd[6161]: 013a0007:6: Skipping heartbeat check on peer slot 3: Slot is DOWN. -- info clusterd[5705]: 013a0007:6: Checking heartbeat of peer slot: 2 (Last heartbeat 0 seconds ago)


This is a cosmetic issue: clusterd heartbeat messages will be logged at info to the /var/log/ltm.


log.clusterd.level set to info.


Set log.clusterd.level to notice.

Fix Information

The log level of clusterd logs heartbeat check messages has changed. For 'Skipping heartbeat check' messages, the log level is now debug, and 'Checking heartbeat of peer slot' messages log level is verbose and now reports on which bp the heartbeat was received.
