Description

I'm trying to use dragonflybsd as a backup server. I'm rsyncing from
multiple remote systems to a dragonfly master. Running ls -la in one
of the synced directories in a snapshot gives me "No such file or
directory errors":

The missing files are all hard links to the same file, I guess they
haven't changed during backups.

dmesg contains missing inode warnings:

,---- | muni# dmesg |tail | HAMMER: WARNING: Missing inode for dirent "GMT0" | obj_id = 000000010c351d62, asof=000000010fae19c0, lo=00010000 | HAMMER: WARNING: Missing inode for dirent "Greenwich" | obj_id = 000000010c351d62, asof=000000010fae19c0, lo=00010000 | HAMMER: WARNING: Missing inode for dirent "Greenwich" | obj_id = 000000010c351d62, asof=000000010fae19c0, lo=00010000 | HAMMER: WARNING: Missing inode for dirent "GMT+0" | obj_id = 000000010c351d62, asof=000000010fae19c0, lo=00010000 | HAMMER: WARNING: Missing inode for dirent "GMT+0" | obj_id = 000000010c351d62, asof=000000010fae19c0, lo=00010000

hammer config looks like:

Where are you getting the transaction id (the @@ id) from?  Is it
coming from an official snapshot softlink generated with one of
the hammer snapshot commands?
The fine-grained history can catch inodes and file data out of sync,
but the official snapshots shouldn't.
'hammer snapls <fs>' will list all official snapshots.  They should
coinside with the snapshot softlinks placed in /var/hammer (by default).

The snapshot in question has been created via the daily periodic
scripts. It's symlinked in /var/hammer/backup/sync and appears in the
hammer snapls output:

It could have caught the rsync in the middle, though it isn't supposed
to break inode<->file linkages. rsync might be re-creating the hardlinks
on every pass.
Are the other snapshots ok?
The most reliable way is to create a manual snapshot as part of your
rsync script so the snapshot occurs on a quiescent filesystem. Something
like this:
do rsync stuff
sync; sleep 5; sync; sleep 5; sync; sleep 5
hammer snapshot /backup/sync /var/hammer/backup/sync "rsync snapshot"

rsync is running right before the snapshots are being created, so rsync
itself had already exited (however it didn't sync or sleep in betweeen)

they are fine.

like this:

do rsync stuff
sync; sleep 5; sync; sleep 5; sync; sleep 5
hammer snapshot /backup/sync /var/hammer/backup/sync "rsync snapshot"

I do that now and will watch for similar problems.

Thanks for your help.
