Hi Dave,

that's what I explained to myself after investigation.
But: I don't have a nice way to configure e.g. a debugging flag.
If I want to enable debugging I want to see debug output of the whole
life cycle of the stonith plugin.

In my personal opinion there has to be a way to tell the external stonith
plugin to do some kind of tracing/logging.
Or do you have a solution to tell this from the outside?

Best regards
Andreas Mock
