RE: <help>Database is Wedged for the 5th time. Diagnostics, anyone?

From: Peter Kahn <pkahn_at_connected.com>

I do not allow check-ins via apache, so it had nothing, nor did the
system log.

I do have commit log and it did have this error (which is the error I
have seen each time after my db is wedged).
svn: Berkeley DB error while checkpointing after Berkeley DB transaction
for filesystem /home/svn/repos/db:
DB_INCOMPLETE: Cache flush was unable to complete

I have yet to find any good way to determine the health of my db so I
can track down the cause and return the environment to health.
Basically, I can wait for the next event, and perform the maintenance
action to recover my db when it crashes. I do not like being this blind
to what is going on inside the db.

The only changes (beyond svn upgrades) in the past 6 months have been:
 introduction of WebSVN
 introduction of svnserve

I have turned off WebSVN. I am reluctant to turn off svnserve because I
finally got all my users over to it and because its about 2-4 times
faster than the http-WebDav access.

I am running svnserve as the svn user with the following options
        --daemon --root /home/svn

Any suggestions?

Nothing?  apache's errorlog doesn't say anything about 'unable to open 
repository' and describe some accompanying BDB error condition?
Did any processes crash?  Run out of disk space?
