Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device'

remush
Hi Guys,

I've got 5 Win 7 32bit computers that are tasked to run rdiff-backup via ssh to a linux server each day at 6pm.

This has been working fine for about 6 months. Recently ONE of the Five computers started producing the following error in the log file.

A few details about the backup.

A shadow copy called B: is created for drive E:
rdiff-backup is run over ssh from windows 7 to a computer running linux

Here's the backup.log file for the relevant computer
-----------------------
Previous backup seems to have failed, regressing destination now.
Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device' raised of class '<type 'exceptions.IOError'>':

Regressing a backup can require a lot of temporary file space, and
your /tmp might not have enough, especially if it is a tmpfs in RAM.
Try using the "--tmpdir" option or environment variables TMPDIR,
TEMP, or TMP to specify a directory with more space.

Re: Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device'

Thanks Bob,

That sounds like a good lead, The server is running tinycore and /tmp is in memory.

I've created following folder on server /mnt/hda1/tmp
I've set it to 777

new rdiff-backup command is

rdiff-backup --tempdir /mnt/hda1/tmp --ssh-no-compression --force -v3 --print-statistics B:/Users/%username% tc@10.1.1.150::/mnt/hda1/rdiffbackup.repositorys/%username%@%computername%

However same error is encountered.

Does rdiff-backup assume that --tempdir /mnt/hda1/tmp is on local win machine or does it know to check for the remote server ?

I also tried --tempdir tc@10.1.1.150::/mnt/hda1/tmp  But this also fails.

Perhaps I'm making a simple syntax error when invoking --tempdir ?

Use --remote-tempdir switch to set the temp dir to be used on the remote
machine.

Re: Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device'

remush
Perhaps this is an inode problem ?

I just tried regressing a file, and i got another "error 28 no space left on disk"

However the disk has 288gb space free

Did a little googling and found suggestions that inodes can cause a problem if there are lots of small files, well I have set no delete older than limits on my backups, and so with infinite backup increments for 5 busy workstations, perhaps this is the problem ?

I've just run $  tune2fs -l /dev/hda1 | grep Inode
and get
Inode count:              30334976
Inodes per group:         8192
Inode blocks per group:   512
Inode size:               256

I'm still researching inodes, (don't know what they are at this stage) does my mount look excessive ?

thx

Re: Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device'

Dominic Raferd-3
I get:

Inode count:              29360128
Inodes per group:         8192
Inode blocks per group:   512
Inode size:               256

so I don't think what you are seeing is excessive.

To use --remote-tempdir you specify the directory as it would be on the remote machine (and it should exist already of course) e.g. /mnt/hda1/tmp/.

You could also try regressing directly on the remote machine using rdiff-backup --check-destination-dir --tempdir /mnt/hda1/tmp /my/repository

"df -i /mnt/hda1" will tell you your current inode usage.

Re: Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device'

remush
$ df -i /mnt/hda1
Filesystem              Inodes      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1                28.9M    116.5K     28.8M   0% /mnt/hda1

Ok, so looks like its not inodes.

I did run this command before using --remove-older-than 50D on all my backups and the Use% was actually 1%.

Ok, I'll try some regression directly on the server.
