[Spread-users] How to detect if a Spread node fails

I have two machines each running the spread server, and each setup so they know about each other.  Let’s call them able & baker.

I have a number of clients programs, in the same group on each



If spread dies, is killed or a machine dies how can I detect that the node has gone ‘offline’ ?

baker receives a message of the type Is_caused_network_mess for each group.  What I need is to know the source is 'able’ 

Any hints ?
