Hi Lars, The data that is going to be replicated is highly dynamic (eg. mysql). rsync does not keep the data intact in the slave. Anyway the Replication is going to be between two IDC. They provide burstable bandwidth.(100 Mbps) The server is a public site. Does it require any add. memory because of drbd so that i can increase it. Because the normal application should not be affected due to drbd eating the mem.
