Has anyone else come across situations where messages.tdb grows to 4GB?
It seems smbd is no longer able to access this file after it reaches
-rw------- 1 root root 4294971392 2009-06-03 09:39 messages.tdb
tdbdump segfaults when trying to read it:
[root at sterling samba]# tdbdump messages.tdb
tdbbackup also segfaults when trying to access it:
[root at sterling samba]# tdbbackup messages.tdb
There is no log info at loglevel 1 regarding messages.tdb. Any higher
log level seems to prevent occurrence, but damages samba performance also.
Samba 3.3.4, running on x86_64.
I do not know if it is relevant, but the site just increased memory from
4GB to 16GB to avoid going into swap. There are up to 75 Windows XP
clients - previously going into about 500MB swap.
Any suggestions for how to diagnose this?
