Well, it must have been rather exactly a year ago when I posted our problems with 2.4. to the list. As far as I remember it got a rather larger discussion with Lars and I also posted benmark results with 2.4. If I would repeat those tests now, with 2.6.11, they would look much better. > Does it apply to mode C as well? Until we switched from 2.6. to 2.4. we always used protocol C, since it was sufficiently fast, so no need to bother with finetuning. > Does anyone know why it is so much faster on 2.6? The question rather would be, why was it so slow for us with 2.4.x, as drbd-0.6 + 2.4.x had about the same speed as drbd-0.7 + 2.6.x. Well, there have been other reports to the list were drbd-0.7 + 2.4 got much more than 11-14MB/s, so I think its somehow related to our system, though nobody really understood whats going on.
