Re: svnadmin dump : Intermittent Checksum mismatch

Is the server otherwise stable? Sounds like bad ram to me... Try running memtest86 on it if you can afford the downtime...

Subject: svnadmin dump : Intermittent Checksum mismatch

Hiya,
 
We have a perl backup cron job which dumps (with svnadmin dump) our repo to a file once a day.
 
Approximately every other day the dump fails with a
svnadmin: Checksum mismatch while reading representation:
 
expected: c6fd093b4fceeaf203c4d34ae7750c8f
 
actual: 22874481ffcc4bfe127151e52f048b87
 
 
 
But each time a diff checksum.
 
Running svnamin verfiy fails 90% of the time with a Checksum mismatch error, but each time on a different revision!
 
10% of the time, the verify completes with no errors though.
 
We are running svn 1.4 on Ubuntu feisty.
 
 
 
Any help greatly appreciated. Many thanks
 
Alex.
