Hi all, I previously posted about a sync going somewhat slow (managed to get it up to 18MB/sec). I figured this could be just the syncing, so I decided to do some performance tests as mentionned in the webinar. I used: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/drbd0 bs=1G count=1 oflag=direct and the output was: 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 86.4031 seconds, 12.4 MB/s Not very exciting. The server is a HP ML370 G5 with a 1TB RAID-5 setup. The controller used the cciss driver. DRBD is 0.7.22. OS is SLES 10 SP1. The network link is gigabit, full duplex, set to 1000 Mbit. I plan to enable write back cache, but I wonder if that is going to make THE difference. What else could I do to boost this? Use another I/O scheduler? Thank you, Bart
