Severity: 4-Minor


During system boot, the flowspecd daemon emits a message 'Shm segment not found in /etc/ha_table/ha_table.conf', and heartbeat monitoring is disabled for flowspecd.


No heartbeat monitoring for flowspecd daemon.


Flowspecd daemon is running.


Manually edit the file /etc/ha_table/ha_table.conf and insert a line at the end: ha segment path: /flowspecd

Missing line in /etc/ha_table/ha_table.conf added causing flowspecd to start cleanly and undergo a heartbeat monitoring.
