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

To that end, a couple oft-overlooked settings:

disk {
   c-fill-target 3M;
net {
   max-buffers 128k;

Basically telling DRBD that it's actually on a 10Gb link. Our stats all 
went way up after this, as did our verify and sync speeds.
