Dear XFS users

While using rsnapshot [1] on an XFS filesystem I encountered the following error, which I can reproduce using the bash command below:

i=0; while (( $i <20 )); do
    rm -rf link-dir;
    cp -al orig-dir link-dir

    echo "Round $i over"; let i++;
done

The problem mostly happens between the 6th and 10th run.

"orig-dir" contains around 12 GB of data and around 40'000 files (the filesystem is 50 GB whereas 27 GB are free, mount options: rw,noatime,usrquota).

The problem doesn't occur with a reiserfs filesystem (on the same device).

Kernel-Error:
Filesystem "sdc1": XFS internal error xfs_trans_cancel at line 1163 of file fs/xfs/xfs_trans.c. Caller 0xffffffff803a4fcf

After remounting, everything seems to be fine, even xfs_repair (xfsprogs 2.8.11) doesn't find any problems on the filesystem.

The above error happens on a 2.6.24-gentoo-r8 SMP 64bit kernel with 4 GB of memory (~3G free), Intel 5000V chipset (ASUS DSBV-D), on top of a Areca ARC-1160 (V1.42) RAID controller.

According to memcheck the memory seems to be OK, anyway I replaced the DIMMs with no success.

Google leads to a lot of results, for the above error message, however I only found one forum entry [2] which seems to look similar.


Any help would be highly appreciated

Many thanks!
Chris
