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

Also, is this about DRBD 8.x or DRBD9 aka DRBD SDS?

For DRBD 8.x:
- What's the size of the data device in kiB (or rounded up to MiB)?
- What's the size of the activity log stripe size (or is it set to the
default of 32 kiB)?
- How many activity log stripes are configured (or the default of 1)?

For DRBD9:
- How many nodes should be allowed to replicate this resource?
