e.g., the output of cat /proc/drbd should be something like:
version: 9.0.15-1 (api:2/proto:86-114)
GIT-hash: c46d27900f471ea0f5ba587592439a9ddde1d08b build by
@buildsystem, 2018-08-14 11:22:01
Transports (api:16): tcp (9.0.15-1)

Notice the 'version' information in the first line.

Or you can also try 'drbdmon', which is normally included in drbd-utils
on somewhat modern Linux distributions.
