I doubt your (or the default) configures cluster services to respond to
/etc/sysconfig/network-functions:do_netreport(). I think this is a perfect
application but have no idea if the function even works or if the cluster
daemons respond to a SIGIO in a useful manner. I also don't see how losing
carrier is going to trigger this function on it's own. Does clumanager
really watch link status? In all liklihood you're still going to have to
come up with a script etc. that monitors interfaces and when it notices a
link going down, invokes the alert mechanism.
