Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Hello all,

we have a two node cluster setup  , under heavy load (created using many
paralallel ping flood sessions)  the following messages are being observed
in syslog.

Apr 19 09:49:59 err CLA-0 kernel: drbd6: PingAck did not arrive in time

The Device settings are as follows , could please anyone help me?

What should be done now to avoid this "pingACK problem in syslog"

Any help would be really helpfull.
