#252 closed defect (fixed)

shm always being used and crashes mondo when out of space

Reported by: zoltak Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.7
Component: mondo Version: 2.2.5
Severity: major Keywords:


Mondoarchive terminates when ever shm is used and runs out of space.

I have unmounted /dev/shm and removed it from the fstab however mondoarchive keeps mounting a shm

e.g. /dev/shm tmpfs 358400 0 358400 0% /mnt/lacie/tmp/mondo.tmp.g0snUy/tmpfs

I have also tried to force shm in the fstab to use 2 GB with no luck.

I can remount the shm mondo is using using the following command: mount -o remount,size=1G /home/backup/tmp/mondo.tmp.MplYHI/tmpfs

The remount prevents shm from running out of space however this is not practically to do dynamically every time mondoarchive begins.

Mondo now doesn't use shm anymore as of rev [2030]. Current systems I/O are quick enough, and the kernel is doing a wonderful job in caching that doesn't need that hack anymore IMO.

Code has just been commented so if you see performances issues, then please report so that we can find a better solution.
