Resending to get the thread id correct, my previous mail was sent without hitting reply because I could not find the mail I replied to. Dear Felix, Please make absolutely sure that you are running a version of DRBD which has the options no-disk-flushes and no-md-flushes actually built in. Without these options being active, DRBD waits until the secondary node has flushed the write request to DISK before finishing the write request on the primary node and returning to the application which made the request. Please note that setting the Protocol to A or B did not have any effect on performance on my setup (8.0.11 on Ubuntu Hardy).
