Original commit in 8.4: commit 383d3c0601bd301d0e889b66fbcbb2b5fcf902d1 Author: Lars Ellenberg <lars.ellenberg at linbit.com> Date: Tue Jan 29 09:58:25 2013 +0100 drbd: adjust upper limit for activity log extents Now that the on-disk activity-log ring buffer size is adjustable, the maximum active set can become larger, and is now limited by the use of 16bit "labels". This increases the maximum working set from 6433 to 65534 extents, each of which covers an area of 4MiB. Which means that if you use the maximum, you'd have to resync more than 250 GiB after an unclean Primary shutdown. With capable backend storage and replication links, this is entirely feasible. diff --git a/user/legacy-84/linux/drbd_limits.h b/user/legacy-84/linux/drbd_limits.h index 1aa6858..8ac8c5d 100644 --- a/user/legacy-84/linux/drbd_limits.h +++ b/user/legacy-84/linux/drbd_limits.h @@ -126,13 +126,12 @@ #define DRBD_RESYNC_RATE_DEF 250 #define DRBD_RESYNC_RATE_SCALE 'k' /* kilobytes */ - /* less than 7 would hit performance unnecessarily. - * 919 slots context information per transaction, - * 32k activity log, 4k transaction size, - * one transaction in flight: - * 919 * 7 = 6433 */ + /* less than 7 would hit performance unnecessarily. */ #define DRBD_AL_EXTENTS_MIN 7 -#define DRBD_AL_EXTENTS_MAX 6433 + /* we use u16 as "slot number", (u16)~0 is "FREE". + * If you use >= 292 kB on-disk ring buffer, + * this is the maximum you can use: */ +#define DRBD_AL_EXTENTS_MAX 0xfffe #define DRBD_AL_EXTENTS_DEF 1237 #define DRBD_AL_EXTENTS_SCALE '1'
