Hi, This is a bugfix only release in of the 8.3 code branch. This release has a number of fixes important for long distance replication setups. (Items 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 = 5 fixes) Two fixes people that use backing devices where IO errors might occur. (plain disks, or iSCSI with a non infinite time to retain) Item 8 is a fix for a regression introduced with 8.3.9 Item 9 fixes for the 1PiByte support introduced with 8.3.10 Item 10 fixes a bug was there since the early days, but it got more likely to trigger with DRBD's rather recent ability to use bigger BIO sizes Item 11 This issue was there since the early days, nobody noticed it before Although nearly of these fixes are for bugs that are very unlikely to trigger, we recommend upgrading to 8.3.11. 8.3.11 (api:88/proto:86-96) -------- * Added missing spinlock in compressed bitmap receive (regression introduced in 8.3.10, could lead to "negative" out-of-sync stats and non-terminating resync when "use-rle" is enabled) * Fixed handling of read errors during online verify runs * Fixes for possible distributed deadlocks during online verify and checksum based resync processes * Fixed handling of IO errors with an on-io-error=pass-on policy; the disk state goes to inconsistent * Fixed the behavior in case ping-timeout and ping-int are set to the same value * Fix for connecting on high latency network links * Fixed wrong connection drops ("PingAck did not arrive in time") with asymmetrically congested networks * Fixed state transitions if fence-peer handler returns after connection was established again * Fixes to drbdmeta and drbdsetup for the > 16TByte support * Made negotiation of max_bio_size conservative instead of optimistic * Network timeouts for mirrored write requests are now always enforced, no longer only when the socket is congested http://git.drbd.org/?p=drbd-8.3.git;a=tag;h=drbd-8.3.11 http://oss.linbit.com/drbd/8.3/drbd-8.3.11.tar.gz http://www.linbit.com/support/drbd-8.3.11/ Best, 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.
