Was fixed later, do not know by heart with which "sucker" release. I guess it is fixed in 2.6.25. Starting with 8.0.12 we offer a workaround for this in DRBD (and 8.2.6 when I finally find the time to finish it): Add no-disk-flushes and no-md-flushes to your disk config. -phil -- : Dipl-Ing Philipp Reisner Tel +43-1-8178292-50 : : LINBIT Information Technologies GmbH Fax +43-1-8178292-82 : : Vivenotgasse 48, 1120 Vienna, Austria http://www.linbit.com :
