Pacemaker default configurations are unreasonable

Bug Description

Tripleo uses pacemaker's default configurations of virtual ip monitor interval and haproxy monitor interval, which is
sudo pcs resource show ip-
Resource: ip- (class=ocf provider=heartbeat type=IPaddr2)
    Attributes: ip= cidr_netmask=32
    Operations: start interval=0s timeout=20s (ip-
                stop interval=0s timeout=20s (ip-
                monitor interval=10s timeout=20s (ip-

sudo pcs resource show haproxy
Resource: haproxy (class=systemd type=haproxy)
    Operations: start interval=0s timeout=200s (haproxy-start-interval-0s)
                stop interval=0s timeout=200s (haproxy-stop-interval-0s)
                monitor interval=60s (haproxy-monitor-interval-60s)

The first configuration will make the outage time of openstack service to be more than 20s.
The second configuration may make the outage time of haproxy processes to be 60s (the worst case).

All these make the HA not very effective (outage time is too long).

Can you expand here in detail what failure scenario is suboptimal?

When the VIP moves it does not really matter if haproxy still needs to be monitored or not, because connections will go to the moved VIP. Are you saying the VIP timeouts need to be lower?

Yes I think the VIP monitor interval and timeout needs to be lower. It should be as low as possible, without adverse effects. Right now if the interval is at 10s, and timeout 20s, it seems possible that a VIP failure could take 30 seconds to failover. Right? I hope we can lower this to at least only a couple seconds.

    Allow VIP resource to have customized ops

    Introduce meta_params and op_params which will be
    passed to the pcs resource create comand when creating
    the VIPs. This allows us to specify custom ops for VIPs
    in the following manner, by setting hiera. E.g.:
    tripleo::profile::pacemaker::haproxy_bundle::op_params: 'start timeout=200s stop timeout=200s monitor timeout=5s'
