Two servers both with 1 Gigabit NICs and connected by a crossed cable. When sync starts, the speed is normal (30000 K/sec). After a few minutes, it drops to the values seen bellow. ================================================================= # cat /proc/drbd version: 0.6.11 (api:64/proto:62) 0: cs:SyncingAll st:Primary/Secondary ns:104102280 nr:0 dw:30380 dr:104095280 pe:45 ua:0 [==============>.....] sync'ed: 74.7% (34538/136187)M finish: 3:41:09h speed: 2,676 (5,653) K/sec ================================================================= /dev/nb0 is 133GB in size (LVM beneath DRBD). If the 30000 K/sec transfer rate was sustained, the full sync would take about 1.5 hours. But in this case it took 10 hours! Is this a problem of DRBD or aren't IDE hard drives capable of keeping up sustained high transfer rates? Thanks Mark
