Hi, Let me point out a few highlights: *) Use drbd-overview instead of 'cat /proc/drbd' *) The udev rule provides you nice symlinks for the drbd device nodes: /dev/drbd/by-res/foo-bar *) include statement: Although we have not yet changed the configuration examples, but now it is possible to have a drbd.conf that looks like this: include "/etc/drbd.d/global_shared.conf" include "/etc/drbd.d/*.res" *) the congested_fn should improve overall system performance on machines with hight IO load. *) The outdate-wfc-timeout allows one to tune the wait-for-connect time down to 1 second in case the peer is already outdated. 8.3.1rc1 (api:86/proto:86-89) -------- * Fixed drbdadm invalidate on disconnected devices (reg in 8.2.7) * Adding a missing range check in ensure_mdev() * Implemented a congested_fn; the kernel can keep its pdflushes running now * Improvements the connection code for high latency links * Fix for several potential memory leaks when allocating a device * Use an additional meta data bit to store the fact of an old crashed primary * Udev rule that populates /dev/drbd/by-res/ and /dev/drbd/by-disk/ * New timeout option: outdated-wfc-timeout * New drbdmeta option: --ignore-sanity-checks * Include statement for drbd.conf * Improvements to drbd-overview.pl * Fixed snapshot-resync-target-lvm.sh to work with more than 10 devices * Do not force a full resync after a detach on a primary node * Compatibility with Linux 2.6.27 and 2.6.28 http://oss.linbit.com/drbd/8.3/drbd-8.3.1rc1.tar.gz http://git.drbd.org/?p=drbd-8.3.git;a=tag;h=drbd-8.3.1rc1 Testing and comments welcome! -Phil -- : Dipl-Ing Philipp Reisner : LINBIT | Your Way to High Availability : Tel: +43-1-8178292-50, Fax: +43-1-8178292-82 : http://www.linbit.com DRBD(R) and LINBIT(R) are registered trademarks of LINBIT, Austria.
