3ware Raid controllers and 64bit Etch
I have been having data corruption problems for the last two months on
After extensive testing, I have finally narrowed the problem down to
Debian Etch 2.6.18-5 kernel
with the 3ware PCI controller. The same machine using the onboard SATA
controller does not
The machines would also hang occasionally - no errors displayed on
I upgraded to a 2.6.23-13 kernel.org kernel 24 hours ago, and have not
been able to reproduce
these problems since then - Previously it would take about 10 minutes
for the problem to appear.
I could reproduce these problems by using a java program to insert
logs (30,000,000 records)
into a local postgres 8.2.5 database -
After this I would see
"DETAIL: Could not open file "pg_clog/0495": No such file or
type messages in my postgres logs.
I had also managed to corrupt my SVN repository - md5s of the files no
what was in the SVN database... (svnadmin verfify /path/to/repository)
Has anyone seen these problems?
