RAID 1 over TCP/IP for Linux (user documentation). Drbd is a block device which is designed to build high availability. The DRBD User’s Guide is excellent documentation and reference, you are strongly encouraged to thoroughly read it. Learn how to set it up.

Distributed Replicated Block Device

After this stage, you will need to perform the operations described only on the primary node. This defines the default “master” node. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

When a storage device fails, the RAID layer chooses to read the other, without the application instance knowing of the failure. At this point, unless you configured DRBD to automatically recover from split brain, you must manually intervene by selecting one node whose modifications will be discarded this node is referred to as the split brain victim.

This intervention is made with the following commands:. Conversely, crbd RAID, if the single application instance fails, the information on the two storage devices is effectively unusable, but in DRBD, the other application instance can take over.

DRBD is often deployed together with the Pacemaker or Heartbeat cluster resource managers, although it does integrate with other cluster management frameworks. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources.

General Architecture Documentatoin Availability: You can get more information about DRBD in their website at http: Master node castor should have the virtual IP address. Do not attempt to perform the same synchronization on the secondary node, it must be performed only once on the primary node.

The last command to setup DRBD, and only on the primary node, it’s to initialize the resource and set as primary:. A free mail server version is also available, as well as the business mail dbrd and the MSP mail serverfor Managed Service Providers, which also include features like personal organizer, AntiVirus, AntiSpam, or advanced security policies.


The secondary node s then transfers data to its corresponding lower-level block device.

The data marked with bold italic is the one that must be replaced with actual data from your specific setup. This need to be done before a DRBD resource can be taken online for the first time, thus only on initial device creation:.

Should the primary node fail, a drbx management process promotes the secondary node to a primary state.


Documemtation approach has a number of disadvantages, which DRBD may help offset:. Contents of this wiki are under Create Common Attribution v3 licence. However you could install the drbd package at this moment version 8. This node is the one you will consider the primary node in the future cluster setup. The commands must be issued on both nodes. While there are two storage devices, there is only one instance of the application and the application is not aware of multiple copies.

After issuing this command, the initial full synchronization will commence. After split brain has been detected, one node will always have the resource in a StandAlone connection state. February Learn how and when to remove this template message. The other might either also be in the StandAlone state if both nodes detected the split brain simultaneouslyor in WFConnection if srbd peer tore down the connection before the other node had a chance to detect split brain.

In contrast, with DRBD there are two instances of the application, and each can read only from one of the two storage devices. By now, your DRBD device is fully operational, even before the initial synchronization has completed albeit with slightly reduced performance.


We suppose you have all the information about mysql in following directories may differ depending on Linux distro:.

DRBD is a distributed replicated storage system for the Linux platform. Go back to Pandora FMS documentation index. After issuing this command, the initial full synchronization will commence. DRBD detects split brain at the time connectivity becomes available again and the peer nodes exchange the initial DRBD protocol handshake. It is implemented as a kernel driver, several userspace management applications, and some shell scripts. At the end, bring DRBD resource up, by issuing:.

Dicumentation disadvantage is the lower time required to write directly to a shared storage device than to route the write through the other node.

Next, you have to initialize the DRBD resource meta data. Should one storage device fail, the application instance tied to that device can no longer read the data. When the failed ex-primary node returns, the system may or may not raise it to primary level again, after device data resynchronization. It integrates with virtualization solutions such as Xenand may dockmentation used both below and on top of the Erbd LVM stack.

Do it ONLY in the primary node, will be replicated to the other nodes automatically. Move all data to mounted partition in documentarion primary nodes and delete all the relevant mysql information in the secondary node:. Archived from the original on Over DRBD you can provide a cluster on almost everything you can replicate in disk.
