Description tom 2007-03-29 08:00:10 UTC
I just spent a few hours trying to figure out why I couldn't get CARP
to work on an if_bridge interface before discovering "%s: carp is not
supported for this interface type\n" in the source and finding out that
if I had set the sysctl net.inet.carp.log > 1, i would have seen an error
message when I tried to ifconfig  the carp interface.

Ideally, I would like to see CARP supported on bridge interfaces, but
failing that, i would like to see the man page for CARP list the
interface types that are not supported, or not completely supported. It
would also be nice if the failure diagnostic output appeared at the
default logging level and not just the higher one.
