I upgraded one of two boxes in the cluster from X86 to EM64T, I kept all 
config. While the disconnected performance is quite similar, as soon as 
I connect the both, performance is horrible. Horrible means I cannot get 
10% of what I had before. Usually DRBD overhead was negligible (under 
5%), now it unacceptable.

Both machines show almost no CPU and low disk i/o, What are they waiting 
for? How can I debug that? The communication path between the two seems 
as always:

[  3]  0.0-10.0 sec  2.29 GBytes  1.97 Gbits/sec

(2 Bonded Intel Gbits)

How can I debug that?

Thanks in advance.
