Hi to all, i'm making a new installation on SLES 10 x86_64 on 2 HP Proliant DL380 multiprocessor servers with 2 Ultra 320 SCSI disks of 146 Gb in raid1 on each using Smart Array 6i hardware raid controller. Both servers have 2GB ram. The 2 servers are connected on public network on eth0 and connected with cross cable on eth1 dedicated for sync of drbd, both Gigabit ethernet. When i make scp of one big file from one server to the other i reach 50Mb/sec speed. If i force the sync of the partitions to drbd with invalidate_remote it do not go over 12 Mb/sec. version: 0.7.21 (api:79/proto:74) SVN Revision: 2341 build by lmb at dale, 2006-08-10 14:19:54 0: cs:SyncSource st:Primary/Secondary ld:Consistent ns:41370104 nr:0 dw:0 dr:41371732 al:0 bm:6109 lo:0 pe:201 ua:407 ap:0 [==============>.....] sync'ed: 70.5% (16949/57349)M finish: 0:22:15 speed: 12,968 (12,672) K/sec It seems like it is limited to network connection of 10Mbit. i tried with rate option to 50M,40M,30M and it is the same. I'm using protocol C. Partitions are as follows: Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux /dev/cciss/c0d0p2 14 536 4200997+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/cciss/c0d0p3 537 3147 20972857+ 83 Linux /dev/cciss/c0d0p4 3148 17848 118085782+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/cciss/c0d0p5 3148 10458 58725576 83 Linux /dev/cciss/c0d0p6 10459 17769 58725576 83 Linux /dev/cciss/c0d0p7 17770 17848 634536 83 Linux Partitions for the system are p1/p2/p3, partitions to be synced are p5 and p6 (now testing only with p5), i'm using the last partition p7 as metadisk partition. DRBD version 0.7.21 and kernel 220.127.116.11-0.9-smp x86_64 If you have any clue on the possible cause please let me know. May be this speed is normal for this kind of environment or may be i have to tune some network parameters. Thanks, Bye, Marcello
