I played with drbd when it was first being developed but haven't
touched it since. I am just curious if have any statistics on the max
and average NFS operations per second your drbd/nfs host is doing?

At a previous job we had NetApp 840 Filers and were doing 35k nfs
op/sec on average with spikes to 60k.
