Ping directive

Ping directives are given to declare PingNodes to Heartbeat.

The syntax of the ping directive is simple:

ping ip-address ...

Each IP address listed in a ping directive is considered to be independent. That is, connectivity to each node is considered to be equally important.

In order to declare that a group of nodes are equally qualified for a particular function, and that the presence of any of them indicates successful communication, use the PingGroupDirective.
