Hi there -- I have a 6.9TB XFS volume that is acting up
after a power failure (I understand XFS + no UPS + PC
hardware == badness. Not my decision.)
The machine is a dual proc x86 (intel xeon 5130) w/ 8GB RAM
running a custom 2.6.18 kernel on top of Ubuntu 6.06.
Since xfs_check can't repair volumes of this size without
scads of memory, I've been using xfs_repair to correct
power-related problems before.
Unfortunately, for some reason xfs_repair is segfaulting:
# ulimit -c unlimited
# xfs_repair -v /dev/md1
Phase 1 - find and verify superblock...
Phase 2 - using internal log
- zero log...
zero_log: head block 8 tail block 8
- scan filesystem freespace and inode maps...
- found root inode chunk
Phase 3 - for each AG...
- scan and clear agi unlinked lists...
- process known inodes and perform inode discovery...
- agno = 0
- agno = 1
- agno = 2
- agno = 3
- agno = 4
- agno = 5
- agno = 6
- agno = 7
- agno = 8
- agno = 9
- agno = 10
- agno = 11
- agno = 12
- agno = 13
- agno = 14
- agno = 15
- agno = 16
- agno = 17
- agno = 18
- agno = 19
- agno = 20
- agno = 21
- agno = 22
- agno = 23
- agno = 24
- agno = 25
- agno = 26
- agno = 27
- agno = 28
- agno = 29
- agno = 30
- agno = 31
- process newly discovered inodes...
Phase 4 - check for duplicate blocks...
- setting up duplicate extent list...
- clear lost+found (if it exists) ...
- clearing existing "lost+found" inode
