2013-03-22drbd: adjust upper limit for activity log extentsLars Ellenberg
Now that the on-disk activity-log ring buffer size is adjustable, the maximum active set can become larger, and is now limited by the use of 16bit "labels". This increases the maximum working set from 6433 to 65534 extents, each of which covers an area of 4MiB. Which means that if you use the maximum, you'd have to resync more than 250 GiB after an unclean Primary shutdown. With capable backend storage and replication links, this is entirely feasible.

2012-11-08drbd: New disk option al-updatesPhilipp Reisner
By disabling al-updates one might increase performace. The price for that is that in case a crashed primary (that had al-updates disabled) is reintegraded, it will receive a full-resync instead of a bitmap based resync.

2012-11-08drbd: Changed some defaultsPhilipp Reisner
* Enabled the resync controller, with a fill target of 50Kib. That gives reasonable resync speeds without tuning. A much better default than the 250KiB/s fixed. * Enable bitmap compression. It is save to use, and most people have more CPU power than network bandwidth. * ko-count of 7: Abort a connection if the peer fails to process a write request within 42 seconds. * al-extents of 1237: ~5 GiB seems to be a much more sane default these days.

2012-11-08drbd: allow ping-timeout of up to 30 secondsLars Ellenberg
Allow up to 300 centi-seconds to be configured for the "ping timeout". There may be setups where heavy congestion, huge buffers, and asymmetric bandwidth limitations may need a "huge" ping-timeout as work-around for "spurious connection loss" problems.

2012-11-08drbd: Fix the upper limit of resync-afterAndreas Gruenbacher
The 32-bit resync_after netlink field takes a device minor number as parameter, which is no longer limited to 255. We cannot statically verify which device numbers are valid, so set the ummer limit to the highest possible signed 32-bit integer.

2012-11-08drbd: Introduce protocol version 100 headersAndreas Gruenbacher
The 8 byte header finally becomes too small. With the protocol 100 header we have 16 bit for the volume number, proper 32 bit for the data length, and 32 bit for further extensions in the future. Previous versions of drbd are using version 80 headers for all packets short enough for protocol 80. They support both header versions in worker context, but only version 80 headers in asynchronous context. For backwards compatibility, continue to use version 80 headers for short packets before protocol version 100. From protocol version 100 on, use the same header version for all packets.

2012-11-08drbd: distribute former syncer_conf settings to disk, connection, and ↵Lars Ellenberg
resource level This commit breaks the API again. Move per-volume former syncer options into disk_conf. Move per-connection former syncer options into net_conf. Renamed the remainign sync_conf to res_opts Syncer settings have been changeable at runtime, so we need to prepare for these settings to be runtime-changeable in their new home as well. Introduce new configuration operations, and share the netlink attribute between "attach" (create new disk) and "disk-opts" (change options). Same for "connect" and "net-opts". Some fields cannot be changed at runtime, however. Introduce a new flag GENLA_F_INVARIANT to be able to trigger on that in the generated validation and assignment functions.

2011-10-14drbd: new on-disk activity log transaction formatLars Ellenberg
Use a new on-disk transaction format for the activity log, which allows for multiple changes to the active set per transaction.

We now track the data rate of locally submitted resync related requests, and can thus detect non-resync activity on the lower level device.
