nobody said that _maximum_ is _optimal_.

optimal values to reduce latency may be small(ish) values here.
optimal values for maximum throughput may be large(ish) values here.

tuning drbd depends to a large degree on the network and attached
storage, and is sometimes very hard to do, since you may have to tune
each component by itself.

what do you call "raw device" here?
