Hi, I am currently evaluating the use of drbd for real-time replication of an Oracle DB. The hardware that the Oracle DB will be running on involves 2 dual-core AMD Opterons, 4 GB RAM, an LSI MegaRAID 320-2X SCSI RAID Controller with 512MB NVRAM, and 10k SCSI Hard drives (8 of them). An Intel Pro/1000 MT Quad Pro Server Adapter card will be used for networking, with 2 ports dedicated to the DRBD connection to a similarly configured machine. Would drbd be a bottleneck in this configuration? The NIC should be able to deliver about 180MB/s or so and so should the SCSI RAID controller. Anyone have experience with this type of hardware? Thank you for your time. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around http://mail.yahoo.com
