    Control Messages

    Connection State

    Connection state of the peer’s state machine with which the server is communicating.

    1=Closed—Connection with the peer is closed.

    2=waitConnAck—Waiting for an acknowledgment from the peer.

    3=waitICea—Waiting for a Capabilities-Exchange-Answer from the peer.

    4=elect—When the peer and the server are trying to bring up the connection simultaneously, an election process begins which determines which socket remains open.

    5=waitReturns—Waiting for election returns.

    6=r-open—Responder transport connection is used for communication.

    7=i-open—Initiator transport connection is used for communication.

    8=closing—Actively closing and doing cleanup.

    State Duration

    Peer state duration, measured in centiseconds.

    Failed Connects

    If there is no transport connection with a peer, this is the number of times the server attempts to connect to that peer. This value is reset on disconnection.

    Watchdog State

    1=okay—Indicates that the connection is presumed working.

    2=suspect—Indicates that the connection is possibly congested or down.

    3=down—The peer is no longer reachable, causing the transport connection to be shutdown.

    4=reopen—Three watchdog messages are exchanged with accepted round trip times, and the connection to the peer is considered stabilized.

    Watchdog Timer

    The interval between watchdog events.

    Transport Failures

    Number of unexpected transport failures.

    Disconnect Cause

    The last cause for a peer’s disconnection:

    rebooting—A scheduled reboot is imminent.

    busy—The peer's internal resources are constrained, and it has determined that the transport connection needs to be shutdown.

    doNotWantToTalk—The peer has determined that it does not see a need for the transport connection to exist, since it does not expect any messages to be exchanged in the foreseeable future.

    electionLost—The peer has determined that it has lost the election process and has therefore disconnected the transport connection.

    Disconnect By

    Identifies who initiated the disconnect:

    host—The server initiated the disconnect.

    peer—The peer with which the server was connected initiated the disconnect.
