I think you're in the Linux-HA forum.  There are three archives of this 
information - two are searchable.

OCF LSB and heartbeat are all types of primitive resources.  You use 
them when that's the kind of resource you want to invoke.

Provider is only part of the OCF resource spec, and it can be anything 
you want - but it affects where you put the scripts.  For example, you 
could have provider="JanLenaerts" and then it would look for them in the 
JanLenaerts directory.
