I've done a bit of this from time to time. It depends how stuck you
are and how much effort you want to spend as to whether this is worth
Well as my personal time is worth nearly nothing I'm willing to try a
bunch of stuff to get this back, so any and all suggestions you have
I'll be willing to try.
As I said on the list, try xfs_repair and make sure it has enough
memory. Make sure you have a recent xfs_repair too.
I'm pretty sure we have a recent version of xfs_repair because the tech
guy at consensys sent me a xfs_repair update, and then he modified that
version so that it would skip an Assertion error that was causing
xfs_repair to stop.
how much memory does the system have? have you tried making sure
there is enough swap?
total: used: free: shared:
Mem: 3962441728 919121920 3043319808 0 63930368 361832448
Swap: 2138537984 0 2138537984
MemTotal: 3869572 kB
MemFree: 2971992 kB
SwapTotal: 2088416 kB
SwapFree: 2088416 kB
It seems like this should be enough memory if everything is running
What I'm wondering is, is there any way for me to get my data back?
probably --- i just wonder how much memory xfs_repair is trying to use
Is there a way I can find this out and reply back to you?
Thanks so much for all your help, I'll take any and all advice at this
