[DRBD-user] DRBD and a high performance MySQL database

Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

We are considering trying to run a high performance MySQL database on
top of a DRBD mount.

The underlying disks are a RAID-5 array of 15,000 RPM SCSI disks on a
Dual Xeon 3.0ghz.

Is anyone running MySQL on DRBD in a high performance setup?

We would like to add the redundancy in hardware and increase our
reliability but we do not want to sacrifice performance.  Our database
is ~2gigs in size and growing and our machines each have 4gigs of ram
but can support 8gigs.

Thanks for any insight or advice,
