How/Where to request new version of DRBD?

Hi,

I’m testing DRBD on openSUSE 12.1

Every call to DRBDADM is commented with:

DRBD module version: 8.3.11
userland version: 8.3.10
you should upgrade your drbd tools!

Where/how can I “request” a new version?

Tahnk You,

Marc

Probably the best thing to do would be to submit a bug in bugzilla. On
my 12.1 system, I see the module is 8.3.11 with userland tools for 8.3.10
as well, and it doesn’t look like factory has updated with .11 either.

It looks like this is just a warning and the tools should work OK until
the update is available. But to be honest, I don’t know anything about
it (never heard of it until just now) - it certainly looks interesting,
though. :slight_smile:

Hi ;
On OpenSuse 12.1, we updated drbd to 8.4.1 both the km and the tools following the instructions here.
How To Upgrade DRBD Userland Version To 8.3.9 Under OpenSUSE 11.4 | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
It wasn’t bad on step two change 8.3 to 8.4

wget http://oss.linbit.com/drbd/8.4/drbd-8.4.1.tar.gz
tar zxvf drbd-8.4.1.tar.gz

Make sure you add --with-km to the configure line

cd drbd-8.4.1/
./configure --prefix=/usr --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc --with-utils --with-pacemaker --with-km
make clean all
make install

After doing this I am seeing high cpu utilization when writing to disk not when sending, I am using protocol A
If I copy a large file from the command prompt I see 100% utilization on 1 cpu and the network transfer the data. When the command prompt comes back the the data has all been written the network continues to send the data however, the cpu goes back to reasonable levels under 10% total cpu utilization. I tried top, I can’t see drbd in top.
