Omnidbutil -writedb

Hi,

 

I just did 

Omnidbutil –purge –filenames –days 1  -force

Omnidbutil –writedb –mmdb c:\IDBtemp -cdb c:\IDBtemp

Omnidbutil –readdb –mmdb c:\IDBtemp -cdb c:\IDBtemp

 

but omnidbutil -readdb seemed hung in the process. I haven't got any error message yet, but it's been 2 hours and it was still at

Imporing file names and file version for client5.van.org..... instead proceeding to the next client.

 

Would it error out eventually (if there is really a problem?)

 

Thank you.

Re: Omnidbutil -writedb

Hi,

If you check the size of the file that is importing how big is it? importing the filenames can take a long time.

Also check task manager on the cell manager, how much ram and CPU is rds.exe and omnidbutil.exe using? This will give you a good indication of whether the process has hung

Re: Omnidbutil -writedb

The file size is 600 MB.

I think it somehow stuck. It has been about 12 hours now since it started imporing this particular file. It imported another file with the size about 430 MB in 3 minutes yesterday no problem.

Checked the CPU and memory, nothing is stressing the cell manager.

 

Wonder if I need to stop the omnisv and just copy back the db40 folder?

Re: Omnidbutil -writedb

Hi,

 

Post output for:

omnidbcheck -extended

maybe you have some corruption in your IDB

 

Copy the folder db40  works, but if you have any corruption the move in the folder.

Also,

 

run this steps in order to run purge:

C:\Program Files\Omniback\bin\omnidb -strip

C:\Program Files\OmniBack\omnidbutil -purge -filenames -dcbf -days number of days that you want keep> –force

C:\Program Files\Omniback\bin\omnidbutil -purge -sessions <number of days that you want keep>

C:\Program Files\Omniback\bin\omnidbutil -purge -messages <number of days that you want keep>

Re: Omnidbutil -writedb

omnidbcheck -extended is still running.

I will post the result as soon as it's finished.

 

The commands that I ran were

Omnidbutil –purge –filenames –days 1  -force
Omnidbutil –purge –sessions 1  -force
Omnidbutil –purge –messages 1  -force
Omnidbutil –purge –DCBF –days 1  -force
omnidbutil -purge_failed_copies

 

except omnidb -strip

 

Would it cause the problem by not running omnidb -strip?

 

Thank you.
