RE: Re: upgrading SVN

In reading about fsfs back-end, I learned that BDB-backed repositories
shouldn't be stored on an NFS volume.

Our repository was migrated to NFS a few weeks before the server upgrade
due to space issues on the local disk. Since our repository is lightly
used, it's entirely possible that the problems existed further back than
the server upgrade but no one noticed.

My bet is that this is the true root of our problems.

Generally there have been problems of the sort you mention with the
BDB. The sentiment from many is that the BDB should be dropped
entirely, although others disagree. Some people use it without
trouble while others are plagued with problems.

Since you are having trouble with the BDB then consider converting
your backend to fsfs instead. Dump and load your database and create
a new one using the fsfs instead. I am using the fsfs exclusively.
Using the fsfs backend will avoid the problems you are seeing.
