#2148 closed bug (fixed)

BFS volume not fully written to

Reported by: andreasf Owned by: axeld
Priority: critical Milestone: R1/alpha1
Component: File Systems/BFS Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86


As discussed on the haiku-development list, I have a 4.0 GB BFS volume, second primary Intel partition, slave IDE device. I am unable to get more than ~2400 MB onto the volume.

Ways to reproduce:


bzr branch

results 100% reproducible (here during phase 2/5) in the KDL:

PANIC: block_cache: supposed to be clean block was changed!

Corresponding sc (shortened):

put_cached_block block_cache cached_block
put_cached_block block_cache
<bfs>Unset CachedBlock
_GrowStream Inode Transaction
SetFileSize Inode Transaction
WriteAt Inode Transaction
bfs_write fs_volume fs_vnode
<bfs>file_write file_descriptor

(This KDL can be continue'd.) Bazaar 1.3.1 is based on Python >= 2.4 and requires _socket and bz2 modules; to satisfy the latter, I compiled Python 2.5.x (stable) SVN branch using this patch, enabling said modules in Modules/Setup. This patch was still considered work-in-progress but its incompleteness shouldn't be able to cause such a KDL. To successfully run Bazaar, the hostname needs to be set, here using hostname test.

ii) Copying a large source code folder (such as a successful branch from my main volume) onto the volume (dragging from one window to another) results in a Tracker error message box (during Tracker Status progress window), showing a large negative system error code.


dd if=/dev/zero of=/ToBe/zerofile

stops and presents the error message

Read-only file system

After each of these ways to reproduce, unexpected high CPU usage remains, and the volume has become read-only - no further files can be written or removed. But the volume is neither shown as full, nor could it theoretically be full number-wise. For i) it was slightly over 2400 MB the first time, for ii) and iii) slightly above to 2380 MB. In each case, chkbfs on BeOS Max is able to repair the volume, it fixes block allocation mismatches.

System is a real P4 with HyperThreading (SMP), 512 MB DDR RAM. firewire bus_manager was removed to avoid issues like on gcc4, no difference.

The partition was created using GParted on Linux, left unformatted, it is being shown as Linux native (not BeOS) in BeOS' DriveSetup. The partition was most likely initialized with Haiku's DriveSetup, using default values. Despite the apparently wrong partition type, BFS filesystem is always recognized correctly.

From bfsinfo -s /dev/disk/ide/ata/0/slave/0/0_1 on BeOS I get this twice, in the clean state:

 name = "ToBe"
 magic1 = 0x42465331 (BFS1) valid
 fs_byte_order = 0x42494745 (BIGE, little endian)
 block_size = 2048
 block_shift = 11
 num_blocks = 2096482
 used_blocks = 1174951
 inode_size = 2048
 magic2 = 0xdd121031 (...1) valid
 blocks_per_ag = 4
 ag_shift = 16
 num_ags = 32
 flags = 0x434c454e (CLEN)
 log_blocks = (0, 129, 2048)
 log_start = 1483
 log_end = 1483
 magic3 = 0x15b6830e
 root_dir = (8, 0, 1)
 indices = (0, 2177, 1)

Probably unrelated, when copying large folders (~12000 files) from this 4.0 GB volume to a new Haiku-DriveSetup-created 12.0 GB volume I pretty reproducibly get vm_page_faults somewhere beyond 8000 files (gcc2). No problems in BeOS though.

Milestone: R1R1/alpha1
Priority: normalcritical

The unrelated vm_page_faults should go into a separate bug report, I guess. I've fixed the problem that you encountered in i) in hrev25125.

Replying to axeld:

I've fixed the problem that you encountered in i) in hrev25125.

Confirmed, it now results in:

bzr: ERROR: [Errno -2147459064] Read-only file system

in reply to:  3 comment:4 by andreasf, 14 years ago

The full chkbfs output afterwards is this:

bfs: /dev/disk/ide/ata/0/slave/0/0_1 is read-only!
Files processed: 166751
BFS has 21286 blocks allocated that should not be.

    Block allocation mismatches detected.  Fixing.

    File system check completed.

Maybe this helps with simulating.

At least the "dd" problem should be fixed with hrev25249. Can you still reproduce it, or any of the other issues?

comment:6 by stippi, 13 years ago

Andreas, what about it... is the problem fixed now? :-)

comment:7 by stippi, 13 years ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

According to Andreas, the problem is fixed since hrev25249.
