Eric, you stated in an earlier email that this began happening some weeks ago, and before that, things were fine. have you taken a cursory look at the operating environment (dasd space utilization, new application(s) being added or changed, new yum/apt-get upgrades (and product installs), etc? when i'm stumped technically (which happens way too often!) i take a look at what else is going on with the environment, and it's amazing what one can find (a user: "oh, right, we forgot to mention that app that was changed to read in the world and sort it", you know...) if one of your apps / processes changed processing characteristics, or if one or more files grew too much, or ... many things such as these could cause your system's "performance profile" to change. i'm not defending drbd nor am i critical of it, and from all the emails i've read, your latest test seems to be in the right direction. isolate the variables is usually the quickest route to solving performance issues. just my €0.02. yvette
