I installed drbd and i'm currently playing arround, sound really *great*.
I plan to use it to replicate a ext3 fs soon (in production) but I would like
to avoid problems, so I've a few questions:
1. My drbd.conf has:
sync-min = 500k
sync-max = 1M
tl-size = 5000
timeout = 60
connect-int = 10
ping-int = 10
ko-count = 4
And I need to replicate a 10Gb fs via a 100Mbits link. Is there some kind of formula to estimate the time needed for a first sync?
2. What's the best solution: (to avoid downtime, loss of data, ...)
1. Umount the fs, setup drbd, remount using new device?
2. Full backup, create a new fs on top of drbd and restore?
No .sig is a good .sig
