That depends on traffic (i.e. rate of change). Generally, yes, but you
have to make sure that your peak DRBD traffic plus the max rate set for
a DRBD backround sync (rate parameter on syncer section) doesn't flood
On the other hand, monitoring the DRBD link with heartbeat sounds like
a good idea in principle.
