First, I switched back to 0.6.4 but the syncall speed stayed slow so I disconnected the server and rebootet 0.6.10 again. Then I commented out the ts-size=5000 parameter to reset it to the default of 256. Didn't gained me much, the speed even dropped to about 1100 KB/s :-( So the only things that could have an influence and were not yet tried are: - Kernel change from 2.4.23 to 2.4.24 due to the security issue - New CPU+Mainboards (Intel P4 & AMD-Athlon, both about 2,6GHz) - New internal NICs, both Intel Gigabit with e1000.o driver As somebody asked me for it I have the iostat and vmstat lines of both systems here: [the primary] Device: tps Blk_read/s Blk_wrtn/s Blk_read Blk_wrtn dev8-0 58.00 6840.00 8.00 6840 8 procs memory swap io system cpu r b w swpd free buff cache si so bi bo in cs us sy id ... 0 4 7 0 592748 62792 177188 0 0 3780 188 762 935 0 2 98 [the secondary] Device: tps Blk_read/s Blk_wrtn/s Blk_read Blk_wrtn dev8-0 336.00 0.00 6496.00 0 6496 procs memory swap io system cpu r b w swpd free buff cache si so bi bo in cs us sy id ... 0 0 0 0 983316 4876 18260 0 0 0 3668 929 1332 0 5 95 > > > > 0: cs:SyncingAll st:Secondary/Primary ns:0 nr:1435652 dw:1435652 dr:0 pe:0 ua:15 > > > > [=====>..............] sync'ed: 26.8% (3668/5004)M > > > > finish: 0:47:57h speed: 1,319 (1,313) K/sec > > > > 1: cs:SyncingAll st:Secondary/Primary ns:0 nr:1367248 dw:1367248 dr:0 pe:0 ua:15 > > > > [=====>..............] sync'ed: 26.7% (3672/5004)M > > > > finish: 0:47:40h speed: 1,336 (1,310) K/sec bye & thanks for any help, -christian- P.S.: Changing the nicelevel below zero is not a good idea as the system becomes quite laggy without any visible speed gain. -- Christian Hammers WESTEND GmbH | Internet-Business-Provider Technik CISCO Systems Partner - Authorized Reseller Lütticher Straße 10 Tel 0241/701333-11 ch at westend.com D-52064 Aachen Fax 0241/911879
