As DRBD does not support compression and I saw a couple of posts on this list asking about compression in DRBD, I thought I'd made a quick test to see how much could I save. I used OpenVPN's lzo compression to test it; I was running the test for a couple of days. DRBD was holding a couple of Xen and VMware guests. You can see more information here: http://blog.wpkg.org/2008/08/27/drdb-and-link-compression/ Note that compressing the link between two DRBD machines make sense over a WAN interface only (if you have to pay for the amount of data transferred, the link is too slow, or both). -- Tomasz Chmielewski
