Unfortunately it appears that machine readable output has never been
implemented in the ctdb tool.  :-(

With some seriousness I ask: how is your C programming?  :-)
This one would be a fairly simple change to the tool, using
print_statistics_machine() as a model.  If that's not something you can
do then I can add it to my todo list.

To get this backported to stable releases it would have to be
considered a bug.  To get that process started, can you please open a
bug at https://bugzilla.samba.org/?


peace & happiness,
