As an FYI we're running mySQL HA Cluster and NFS HA Cluster All 4 boxes are running Centos 5.2 (2.6.18-92.1.6.el5) and DRBD 8.2.6. The mySQL cluster consists of a single DRBD resource whereas the NFS box has 8 resources running on top of LVMs. We've done silly amounts of testing and the boxes are now into production. Zero issues. Why are you running the Centos plus kernel out of interest ? What do you need that isn't in the stock one ? Hardware wise we're a supermicro house so its an X7DWN+ mobo, pair of quad-core xeons, adaptec 5805 controllers. The mySQL servers run SAS 15K disks whereas the NFS box is a hybrid of SAS 15K in RAID1 for the OS/metadata and SATA in R10. All I'd say (a bit of a sweeping generalisation but hey) - is that of the 1000+ servers we've built, when it comes to high file I/O we always seem to have issues with 3Ware. I'm not saying that's the case here but just a comment I'd make. > -----Original Message----- > From: drbd-user-bounces at lists.linbit.com > [mailto:drbd-user-bounces at lists.linbit.com] On Behalf Of Lars > Ellenberg > Sent: 17 August 2008 17:52 > To: drbd-user at lists.linbit.com > Subject: Re: [DRBD-user] DRBD 8.2 crashes CentOS 5.2 on rsync > from remote host > > On Wed, Aug 13, 2008 at 03:00:52PM -0700, Chris Miller wrote: > > > > I've got a pair of HA servers I'm trying to get into production. > > Here are some specs : > > > > Xeon X3210 Quad Core (aka Core 2 Quad) 2.13Ghz (four logical > > processors, no Hyper Threading) > > 4GB memory > > Hardware (3ware) Raid 1 mirror, 2 x Seagate 750GB SATA2 > > 650GB DRBD partition run on top of an LVM2 partition. > > > > CentOS 5.2 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus > > DRBD 8.2 (drbd82-8.2.6-1.el5.centos) > > Kernel Module kmod-drbd82-8.2.6-188.8.131.52_92.1.6.el5.centos.plus > > > > I've been trying to rsync data from a remote server and it's crashed > > a couple of times now.
