I didn't modify the throttle rate. Here is my config:

resource r0 {
  protocol C;
  incon-degr-cmd "echo '!DRBD! pri on incon-degr' | wall ; sleep 60 ; halt
  startup {

  disk {
    on-io-error   detach;

  net {

  syncer {
    rate 10M;
    group 1;
    al-extents 257;

  on sarge1 {
    device     /dev/drbd0;
    disk       /dev/sdb1;
    meta-disk  internal;


  on sarge2 {
    device    /dev/drbd0;
    disk      /dev/sdb1;
    meta-disk internal;
