  • Publication number: 20210247996
    Abstract: [Problem] It is possible to cope with a split-brain problem and a service stop failure in a high availability cluster configuration on a cloud. [Solution] In a case where an active system virtual server (server 310) detects stopping of a heartbeat received from a standby system virtual server (server 320), the active system virtual server notifies a coordination apparatus 100 of the detection of the stopping of a heartbeat. In addition, the active system virtual server reports whether or not a service is operating to the coordination apparatus. The coordination apparatus instructs the standby system virtual server to restart the system in a case where the stopping of a heartbeat and the operation of a service are received. The standby system virtual server restarts the service, restarts an operating system, or restarts the operating system in a case where the restart of the service is not successful, in response to an instruction for restarting the system.
