On a terminal I start to copy a lot of files on the drbd partition. On another terminal I execute 'ls' more times . During the copy, one 'ls' command doesn't display any output for some seconds. I'm unable to stop 'ls' with CRTL+C. In the copy terminal the copy is in freeze state, after a while the copy continue and the 'ls' display the output. > > could there be hardware problems?

Yes, I have the reiserfs on top of drbd and the machines are servers in production. So i cannot change the filesystem. The is some workaround to avoid this problem? I didn't find warning about the problem reiserfs/drbd, maybe should be useful to write about this on the site or on the wiki. Thanks Enrico
