forget about it.
to "end users" of drbd, this is very much useless information.

if you insist:
 both resync extents and active extent ("activity log")
 have "lru cache" properties.
 for an explanation of said keywords,
 consult your favorite documentation of caches.

but again: this is in no way useful for you,
and we likely will drop those lines from /proc/drbd
because of that.
