Yes, I just did the WGET test and got line speed as well. (up to 92MB/s).

I have 5 (scsi-160, 15000rpm) drives in a raid 5 array connected to a perc5 di raid controller build onto the motherboard. the DRBD SynchAll is a backwards IO stream of the physical partition (it begins at the end of the partittion, and streams the block from end to beginning to the remote client), i havent got this operation to work faster that 16MB/s peak.
