Recently we restarted our zeo server and immediately noticed that we are missing good bit of recently added content. We seemed to have reverted back to a specific date in the past. All content updates since have disappeared.
Restoring the Data.fs from a recent backup still had the same effect, the content all reverted back to one specific date. In the logs it does show that we restored the Data.fs from a backup, restarted, and migrated to a newer version of Zope/Plone (Zope 2.9.4 - 2.9.5, Plone 2.5.4 - 2.5.5). After the update, the site was fine and was running along smoothly. A few days later this came up in the event.log: 2008-01-24T19:05:44 ERROR ZServer uncaptured python exception, closing channel <ZServer.HTTPServer.zhttp_channel connected 184.108.40.206:56139 at 0x 1598d92c channel#: 45214 requests:> (socket.error:(54, 'Connection reset by peer') [/usr/local/lib/python2.4/asynchat.py|initiate_send|219] [/usr/l ocal/zope/295/lib/python/ZServer/medusa/http_server.py|send|417] [/usr/local/lib/python2.4/asyncore.py|send|332]) ------ 2008-01-24T19:05:45 ERROR ZEO.zrpc (27931) can't decode message: '(M\x06\xdcK\x00U\x06.reply(TC\x00\x01\x00(cOFS.Image\nP...' ------ 2008-01-24T19:05:45 ERROR ZEO.zrpc.Connection(C) (127.0.0.1:9999) Error caught in asyncore Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/asyncore.py", line 69, in read obj.handle_read_event() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/asyncore.py", line 391, in handle_read_event self.handle_read() File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/zrpc/smac.py", line 219, in handle_read self.message_input(msg) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/zrpc/connection.py", line 387, in message_input msgid, flags, name, args = self.marshal.decode(message) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/zrpc/marshal.py", line 50, in decode return unpickler.load() # msgid, flags, name, args MemoryError ------ 2008-01-24T19:05:45 INFO ZEO.ClientStorage (27931) Disconnected from storage: "('xxxxx.com', 9999)" ------ 2008-01-24T19:05:45 INFO ZEO.ClientStorage (27931) Testing connection <ManagedClientConnection ('220.127.116.11', 9999)> ------ 2008-01-24T19:05:45 INFO ZEO.zrpc.Connection(C) (127.0.0.1:9999) received handshake 'Z303' ------ 2008-01-24T19:05:45 ERROR ZODB.Connection Couldn't load state for 0x01868c Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py", line 732, in setstate self._setstate(obj) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py", line 786, in _setstate self._reader.setGhostState(obj, p) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/serialize.py", line 604, in setGhostState state = self.getState(pickle) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/serialize.py", line 597, in getState return unpickler.load() File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/serialize.py", line 471, in _persistent_load return self.load_oid(reference) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/serialize.py", line 537, in load_oid return self._conn.get(oid) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py", line 201, in get p, serial = self._storage.load(oid, self._version) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/ClientStorage.py", line 746, in load return self.loadEx(oid, version)[:2] File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/ClientStorage.py", line 769, in loadEx data, tid, ver = self._server.loadEx(oid, version) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/ServerStub.py", line 192, in loadEx return self.rpc.call("loadEx", oid, version) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/zrpc/connection.py", line 531, in call r_flags, r_args = self.wait(msgid) File "/usr/local/zope/295/lib/python/ZEO/zrpc/connection.py", line 621, in wait raise DisconnectedError() DisconnectedError ------ The persistent cache file has been saved, but looking at the archive it seems that you can't restore a Data.fs from the persistent cache (please correct me on this). Looking at the logs we can find what content was edited in this time frame and we can see that it did exist at one time, but the data itself is not in any of the backup Data.fs files we have. This is a bit perplexing in that when we restore from any of the backups it still reverts, what could cause this situation and if the data was in fact being saved, where could it have been saved? We were backing up the correct Data.fs (at least, it was the Data.fs that the zeo server was connected to) If the zeo server was read only this would make sense but then we wouldn't be able to make any content updates and it would be immediately evident. Any suggestions or ideas on how we could recover any of this data and the reasoning behind this happening is much appreciated. -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/ZODB-reverts-to-older-state-after-ZEO-restart-tp17264827p17264827.html Sent from the Zope - General mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
