[DRBD-user] DRBD Occasional Lockup

I've been experiencing and troubleshooting this problem for several months
now with little success.

I'm using DRBD 8.4.11-1 in a 2-node, dual-primary cluster on CentOS
7.5.1804. This cluster is a HA virtualization solution based on KVM.
Randomly, maybe once a month or so, the DRBD service on node2 will fail to
finish a write request from node1 (sock_sendmsg time expired) and fencing
is initiated by node1 which results in an IPMI reboot of node2. From what I
can tell, there is increased disk activity on node1 that node2 can't keep
up with. Hardware of the nodes is identical and the DRBD replication occurs
over a dedicated, redundant 10G connection.

I'll start by including some basic, sanitized configs and log messages. I
can provide pretty detailed performance metrics from sysstat if necessary.
Any help in troubleshooting this mystery is greatly appreciated. Please let
me know if you need any other information. Thanks.
