DRBD Top is about to make your life easier! Once you install this utility, you can expect to see an easy to read, simplified overview of your resources and their status. This is especially useful if you have a large number of resources and don’t want to be overwhelmed with information, yet still want key details.

You can view the status of resources and perform administrative tasks with the same utility, allowing for painless management. The best part about using LINBIT’s DRBD Top is that you don’t have to be an expert. DRBD Top is a single statically-linked binary — no additional packages or libraries are needed. And, of course, in true community fashion: the project is Open Source!


DRBD Top works with both DRBD 8.4 and DRBD 9. It is available via Github https://github.com/LINBIT/drbdtop and version 0.1.0 is ready for testing. We are very excited to share this new utility with the world and can’t wait to hear the feedback from the community!

Contact the LINBIT sales team, and find out how to keep your company up and running with the DRBD software, already included in the Linux kernel!

      Great Job — tested and it worked out of the box — added a couple of extra conditionals to enable re-running

    I preferred the old /proc/drbd because the information was clearer (connected, disconnected, outdated, etc).

    Now there’s error codes you need to look up :s
