drbd-user: [DRBD-user] bond for drbd identical performance with

[DRBD-user] bond for drbd identical performance with one link down

Admittedly not a DRBD issue per se, but I guess this list represents quite
some experience in the area: I have two gigabit NICs bonded in balance-rr mode
for DRBD sync. They are directly linked (no switch) to the other other pair in
the other DRBD node.

Before syncing things I was testing the performance and failover. Netperf
shows for instance this:

iscsi2:/etc/sysconfig/network # netperf -p 2222 -H
TCP STREAM TEST from ( port 0 AF_INET to (
port 0 AF_INET
Recv Send Send
Socket Socket Message Elapsed
Size Size Size Time Throughput
bytes bytes bytes secs. 10^6bits/sec

 87380 16384 16384 10.00 977.83

Pulling one cable gives me about the same speed. I would expect it to be at
least 20% slower. It seems the round robin does not speed up things.

The bonds on both sides show up fine in /proc/net/bonding/bond0.

Anyone any idea what I'm doing wrong?
