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

I've used DRBD for smallish amounts of data (~50-75gb) without any
problems before, but have a case where it could be syncronizing about 1tb
of data. It'll be a normal-ish file server with lots of old data -
probably only 10-20gb changing each day. Just curious if there are any
gotcha's for this situation, or if it's a fairly normal environment for
drbd. The plan is to have two identical servers, running in an
active/standby configuration with heartbeat, using Samba to serve the
files up to a bunch of Windows clients.

Appreciate any comments - thanks!
