<help>Database is Wedged for the 6th time. Diagnostics or Prozac, anyone?

From: Peter Kahn <pkahn_at_connected.com>
Date: 2005-03-04 23:39:08 CET

Below was my email from the 5th crash. I'm now up to the 6th. The
difference this time is that I didn't have websvn running.

I am coming to the conclusion that the svnserve executable is not ready
for production. Switching my users back from svn to http is going to
hurt, but at this point I can see no other alternative.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to make my environment

Thanks for any help you can give...

Our repository is presently at 7.7 GB with 2-4 GB of unused db logs.
Could there be a size issue for the svnserve?

My last HTTP accesses were: - - [04/Mar/2005:15:54:01 -0500] "GET /svn/repos/V7.1/
HTTP/1.1" 200 2083 - - [04/Mar/2005:15:54:01 -0500] "GET

-0500] "GET /svn/repos/V7.1/BaseVercommn.h HTTP/1.1" 200 852

My last http errors were:

svn: Berkeley DB error while checkpointing after Berkeley DB transaction
for filesystem /home/svn/repos/db:
DB_INCOMPLETE: Cache flush was unable to complete


svn: version 1.1.2 (r12471) compiled Oct 31
2004, 08:30:56
protocols supported: svnserve [read/write] & WebDav [read only]
Apache: 2.0.52
OS: Linux 2.4.20-8
        we deltify after each check-in. I'm told this will do no harm
and do no good either.

        excerpt from my post-commit log
        # Deltify predecessors of things changed in this revision.
        date >> /home/svn/commit.log
        (nice -2 /usr/local/bin/svnadmin deltify "$REPOS" -r "$REV" >>
/home/svn/commit.log 2>&1 ) &
        echo "-----------------" >> /home/svn/commit.log

svn 1.1.1 on Win32, MacOS X and Linux
svn 1.1.2, 1.1.3 on Win32

Permissions state that all is owned by the svn user
Both Apache and svnserve are run as the svn user

- is anyone using the svnserve on Linux with the BerkeleyDB?
        if so, how large is your environment?
      how much activity do you have in terms of commits per day?
- has anyone had problems with svnserve
- has anyone added any logging to their environment and if so how?

Thanks for the help.
