Do I understand correctly, that plain FSs like EXT3 or XFS could not be used, because of missing appropriate lock-mechanisms? And mounting read-only of EXT3/XFS on the DRBD-Secondary will also not be possible? Just thinking loud, where such features can be useful in my current/planned configuration: - daily.cron with logrotate pushes CPU-usage to 60% which can grow and get a serious bottleneck. Placing it on the secondary makes no sense, because apache-logrotate does an apache-restart, which needs to be on the primary. But running log-analyzer on the secondary can make sense - read only would be enough. - running a mirror of very large dictd-dictionaries, which consume large amounts of HDD-space and memory. Running it with the public web-interface on the primary, and running a web-robot querying dictd heavily on the secondary can make sense. Read only would be enough. But I am not sure, which configuration would have wich performance: 1) dict on GFS used by both nodes 2) dict on EXT3/XFS queried over IP:Port by both nodes 3) splitting the dicts logically, queried criss-cross by both nodes over IP:Port. Last question: Can you expect a ready-to-test date for 0.8? Helmut Wollmersdorfer
