In this paper, we design and implement a fault-tolerant cluster management tool which can monitor the status of the nodes in a cluster DBMS (Database Management System) as well as the status of the various DBMS instances at a given node. Based on the monitoring, our cluster DBMS management tool can provide an intelligent fail-over mechanism for dealing with multiple node failures in a cluster DBMS, thus making its fault-tolerance possible when combined with a load balancer. It is shown that our cluster DBMS management tool can support the nonstop and self-managing of cluster DBMS with its intelligent fail-over mechanism even in case of multiple node failures.
