[Spread-users] Issue with Spread going silent

From my read of it, it looks like the daemons are repeatedly trying to establish a membership and failing.  The membership states of the daemons continually fluctuate between (2, 4, 5, 6) => (Segment, Gather, Form, EVS).  This would cause the daemons to appear to freeze from the point of view of clients too.

So, my guess would be that there is very bad loss between the 3rd node and the others for some reason.

If you can, please e-mail a monitor report that lasts for two minutes or so,
so that we can see several (10 or so) reports from each daemon such that
after a while you add the third machine and then it continues for a while
so that we can see several reports after you added the third machine.
