Discard the version of the secondary if the outcome of the after-sb-0pri algorithm would also destroy the current secondary’s data.

Typically set to the same as –max-buffersor the allowed maximum. Values below 32K do not make sense. The default number of extents is In a typical kernel configuration you should have at least one of md5sha1and crc32c available.

The default value isthe minimum The first 8.3 that the driver of the backing storage device support barriers called ‘tagged command queuing’ in SCSI and ‘native command queuing’ in SATA speak. The second requires that the backing device support disk flushes called ‘force unit access’ in the drive vendors speak.

If a node becomes a disconnected primary, it tries to fence the peer’s disk. This needs to be the same on all nodes alphabravofoxtrot.

There is at least one network stack that performs worse when one uses this hinting method. Packets received from the network are stored in the socket receive buffer first.

8.3 case it decides the current secondary has the correct data, accept a possible instantaneous change of the primary’s data. This was the only implementation before 8. As a consequence detaching from a frozen backing block device never terminates. Please participate in DRBD’s online usage counter [2]. This is how I’d do it: Once the dependencies are installed, download DRBD.


That was the only implementation before 8. This setting has no effect with recent kernels that use explicit on-stack plugging upstream Linux kernel 2.

Server1 is the master server at the moment, it’s DRBD status look like that:. By setting this option you can make the init script to continue to wait even if the device pair had a split brain situation and therefore refuses to connect.

DRDB config on server0: Setup is as follows: If it is too big it will be truncated. Larger values are appropriate for reasonable write throughput with protocol A over high latency networks. I’m guessing from all the testing i’ve just done that the 3rd node, since it’s a backup and possibly remote node is used when the first two nodes fail.

You are strongly encouraged to use peer authentication.

Each erbd marks 4M of the backing storage. When this option is not set the devices stay in secondary role on both nodes. Now is a good time to go and grab your favorite drink. In this case, you can just stop drbd on the 3rd node and use the device as normal.

The Drbf algorithm will be used for the challenge response authentication of the peer. At the time of writing the only ones are: During resync-handshake, the dirty-bitmaps of the nodes are exchanged and merged using bit-orso 8.

nodes will have the same understanding of which blocks are dirty. This document will cover the basics of setting up a third node on a standard Debian Etch installation. Email Required, but never shown.

The recent release of DRBD 8. The default size is 0, i. It may also be started from an arbitrary position by setting this option.

With the stacked-timeouts keyword you disable this, and force DRBD to mind the wfc-timeout and degr-wfc-timeout statements. A resync process sends all marked data blocks form the source to the destination node, as long as no csums-alg is given.


If a node becomes a disconnected primary, it tries to outdate the peer’s disk. In case none wrote anything this policy uses a random decision to perform a “resync” of 0 blocks.

The things I’m unsure of are the current state of the cluster, specifically WFConnection and weather I 8.3 to partition new disk and create 2 partitions one for metadata and one for resource? This command will fail if the device cannot communicate with its partner for timeout seconds.

If a node becomes a disconnected primary, it freezes all its IO operations and calls its fence-peer handler. In case you do not have any automatic after-split-brain policies selected, the nodes refuse to connect.

Values smaller than 10 can lead to degraded performance. Disables the use of disk flushes and barrier BIOs when accessing the meta data device. Auto sync from the node that was primary before the split-brain situation happened. Server0 is the one affected, DRBD process has been stopped on it. The available policies are io-error and suspend-io. Disables the use of disk flushes and barrier BIOs when accessing the meta data device. In case it decides the current secondary has the right data, it calls the “pri-lost-after-sb” handler on the current primary.
