I have a new problem but it's related, so I'll keep this thread alive. To recap: possibly due to some network problems at my hosting provider, my Zope would periodically stop responding and I was unable to stop, restart or kill it, or even restart the machine remotely. I am operating within a FreeBSD jail. Finally, I was given a password to the main os environment, allowing me to restart, which I have needed to do once.
While waiting for my ISP to resolve his problems, I thought it would be a good idea to relieve any excess strain on Zope. Part of the strategy involved setting Squid to ignore no-cache headers. Call me an anti-social protocol violator, but it's still my website and I set the caching headers according to the page update schedule. But I digress. Anyway, with response times improved, friendly search engines went into a feeding frenzy and within 48 hours my ZODB had reached 9GB. Packing time... Now, perhaps due to the machine restart I get the following error when attempting to pack: Traceback (innermost last): Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 101, in publish Module ZPublisher.mapply, line 88, in mapply Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 39, in call_object Module App.ApplicationManager, line 428, in manage_pack Module ZODB.DB, line 555, in pack Module ZODB.FileStorage, line 1570, in pack Module ZODB.fspack, line 700, in pack Module ZODB.fspack, line 455, in findReachable Module ZODB.fspack, line 475, in buildPackIndex Module ZODB.fspack, line 166, in checkTxn Module ZODB.fspack, line 161, in fail CorruptedError: /usr/local/www/Zope/zope01/var/Data.fs:3116771801:time-stamp reduction: 0x03681c50ebb292dd <= 0x03681c530eb31b99 The bulk of the database was added following the restart so truncating may not be realistic. I haven't tried - was it fsrecover? - what is the current best tool or strategy? My setup: Zope 2.7.4-0, python 2.3.4, freebsd5 Thank you, Ken __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
