Hello, i don't speak english very well, but i hope to make my request partly clear. My task is to look for an opportunity to make an optimization regarding the reliabilty of a DRBD-Connection (Version 9) over a LAN between three or four mobile devices. The problems at the task with mobile devices is, that the devices may lose occasionally (and temporary) their connection to each other, but it has to be so that the DRBD alive in a most efficient manner. The paramount Topic is a comparison of energy efficiency between using DRBD and using NFS at the network edge. In NFS i found some configuration-tools to try. Especially configurations on the subject caching, locking and configuring timeouts may be useful. Now, i'm looking for similiar configuration tools for DRBD, but i don't find very much in the documentation. I find something about disk flushes, but i don't see how to configurate here in a finely granular manner. To the subject locking, and configuring timeouts i don't find anything helpful. Can you give me please a hint, where in the documentation or in other stuff i may find further informations? many thanks best reguard Simmr
