[omd-users] Advise needed on monitoring CTDB cluster servers

while realizing monitoring of cluster nodes you need to differentiate
between monitoring the host itself and the service it provides.

while in a scenario where you have a fixed number of independent nodes you
would realize host monitoring to each independent node on it's independent
unique IP address, monitoring it's basic functionality (CPU, mem, hdd,
database-, smb, whatever-service,  etc.) .

while in a scenario where you have identical hosts being booted after a
host fails replacing the failed one, the replacing node should, in the most
cases, be identical to the one being replaced (virtual environment, ideally
a clone). Thus the host monitoring shouldn't be realized different from the
first one.

when this is done you would configure cluster services (in wato) monitoring
the shared IP address,  and your special checks to its provided services
(get/put a file on a share, check DB connection, your special check here).
