I am using only LVM on top of DRBD because i think this:
1- Using "LVM / DRBD8 / Raw VM disk",  i have less layers in the middle,
then, the I/O will be faster.
Is it correct?, or will be minimal the difference of performance?
2- As i use the DRBD verify online once a week,  and i want that this
process not take long, then, my LVM partitions on top of DRBD only has the
minimal size necessary for the disks of VMs, instead of use the complete
disk of the server.
The disadvantage of this strategy is that when i need resize the disk of the
VM, i must do it in offline mode, but with a few steps. I can live well with
this method.
