Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

It's either a limit of the network topology, disk speed, CPU or ram.  We
have several instances of Linux HA/DRBD under VMWare.  In fact, we
usually have two identical VMWare servers with instance "A" on one and
instance "B" on another with DRBD.  If we see a bottle neck it's usually
the physical disk or that we are running low on ram.
