1) We have fixed the issue with cache settings for the new partner. Now L1 cache mode and cache size are used when partner device is created automatically.
If other cache settings or L2 cache is needed on partner device, it need to be created manually. Then just select this device as a partner in replication manager.

2) We'll add this option to the new wizard!
Best regards,
Alexey.

Does not work.
I created a virtual disk cache L1 5000mb, then added a replication partner. I do not see the cache peer.

We don't observe such significant performance loss.
What RAID software do you use?
