DRBD: a block device for HA clusters

Subject:  [PATCH 00/12] DRBD: a block device for HA clusters
Date:  Mon, 23 Mar 2009 16:47:55 +0100
Message-ID:  <>
Archive-link:  Article


this is a series of patches aimed at integrating DRBD ( into
upstream linux kernel. DRBD is a shared-nothing replicated storage device
that's a commonly encountered building block in high availability clusters.

For a variety of reasons now obsolete, DRBD has been maintained as an out of
tree module for 9 years and counting. We, the DRBD developers, would like to
fix that and would like to encourage everybody to review our code, tear it
apart and break it to pieces, so we can ultimately get this to merge.

Only the first patch is self contained (the lru_cache). The other parts of
the patch are split on file boundaries, but are not self contained.
