direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

"man drbd.conf" :

timeout time
 If the partner node fails to send an expected response packet within
 time 10ths of a second, the partner node is considered dead and
 therefore the TCP/IP connection is abandoned. This must be lower
 than connect-int and  ping-int. The default value is 60 = 6 seconds,
 the unit 0.1 seconds.

...so, in your drbd.conf , have lines like

timeout 30

...in the "net" section of the resource(s) where you'd like the timeout to be
3 seconds instead of 6 seconds?  Try it out; the docs say it should work....
