Hi Stefan, Thanks for your response. The home router probably isn't gigabit, although the NICs in each machine are - good point. /proc/mdstat reveals that the 1.8TB raid5s are also still synchronising - so I guess that'll be impacting DRBD sync speed Do meta disks swell with disk size? I have a 500MB RAID1 /boot partition which I could jam it on, or should I create a (much larger?) RAID1 partition dedicated to this purpose? Regards, Henri Stefan Seifert wrote: > On Saturday, 09.
