Hi SVN users
We have the standard master/mirror repo setup as described in the Red Bean book. The sync is kicked off by the post-commit hook script. Today we noticed the sync was stuck on rev 768 on this repo (oddly it was 3 revs behind by then) so I gave the usual svnsync sync command and after a few rows of "....." I got the error posted above.
We recently (within a month or two) upgraded our Sparc-Solaris svn servers from SVN 1.6.9 to 1.6.16.
Usually we don't have sync issues with our many repos but revisions where the revs/?/?? file is near 100M or more does seem to timeout somewhere and we have a workaround that involves a dump/load of the overly large revision. (The file /Svn/repos/db/revs/0/768 is only 44M) I tried to create an incremental dumpfile for this revision 768 but I get another odd error:
Yet oddly - the revision before and after 768 work just fine for creating a dumpfile:
> svnadmin dump /Svn/repos -r769 --incremental --deltas > dmp769
The actions of revision 768 was the addition of a completely new folder to the trunk and contents for that folder. There is no relation between 768 and anything that existed in history in revision 361 or any other revision.
I did a svnadmin verify and it was fine until it got to rev 768 - but it complained about rev 361:
**Note** there are actually 770 revisions on this repo - but the 'verify' operation died on rev768 - while complaining of rev361.
I'm attempting to run a checkout of this repos' trunk directory to see what happens, (using TortoiseSVN). So far so good, but it is a very large repo and checkouts tend to run overnight. I'll follow up with those results in the morning.
In the meantime - what's up with my repo rev768? Is the repo salvageable?
