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

Suppose I use "disk /dev/hdb;" in a 0.7.4 drbd.conf.  Does using 
smartmontools to monitor the SMART status on the hard drive count as 
bypassing DRBD and accessing the underlying device directly (or using 
hdparm on the drive for that matter)?

And if so, would I be better off partitioning the disks into one big 
/dev/hdb1 and using DRBD on top off that & then smartmontools could 
access /dev/hdb?
