I have run into a peculiar problem and haven't got a solution mentioned
I have a SVN repository of size 12 GB or so with over 4000 revisions.
There are a lot of large binary files that get checked in(.fmb) and the size
could be around 200-700KB.
Suddenly, files larger than 100 KB are not getting checked-in. This happens
with text files as well as binary files.
Every time this is attempted, the repository crashes with a Berkeley DB
However,a "svnadmin recover" recovers it.
I can check in any file of a lesser size(e,g, 4 KB). There are no problems
with a checkout.
I checked the DB. The strings table alone is nearly 12 GB.
I have 7GB disk space on this machine.
Any feedback on why Berkeley DB crashes? How can this error be fixed?
Repository is on Subversion 1.3
I do plan to get another server but till such time, I would like the
repository to be able to accept check-Ins.
Any inputs would be highly appreciated.
Also, which is a better backend FSFS or BDB? From what I read, some say FSFS
slows down checkouts but does not crash frequently. Does this get addressed
in Subversion 1.4?
