ocfs2_hb_ctl starts and stops local heartbeat on a OCFS2 device. Users are strongly urged not to use this tool directly. It is automatically invoked by mount.ocfs2(8) and other tools that require heartbeat notifications.
This utility only operates in the local heartbeat mode. It fails silently when run in global heartbeat mode. More information on the heartbeat modes can be found in o2cb(7).
The tools accepts devices to be specified by its name or its uuid. Service denotes the application that is requesting the heartbeat notification.
