journal files size issue
« on: November 05, 2018, 02:37:37 AM »
Every now and then I see this message in send.log:
** Journal 314 send error - Receiving system file is larger than host - stopping
I don't understand, what it wants to tell me. The file journal.314 has 10937034 bytes on both sides. The pointer value in apply.sts is 10937014. The difference of 20 bytes makes me wonder. Maybe these are the result of some system_jrnl swap issues over the weekend.
The main problem is to get the journal transfer running again, as the sending process constantly stops with this error message.

I have no clue how to restart the sending process. I created sent.314 but it still tries to send journal.314 and stops with that error message. I also modified apply.sts to start with journal 315 at position 4.
How can I restart the sending process?

Are you using the data mirroring configuration utility which you can find on the IDE under data management? From there you should just be able to stop and start the send process.

You also could create the file send.stop to stop the send process.

I don't use the utility. All processes are stopped.
The problem ist to start the send process again.

To start the send process run the program *plus/jrnl/send. No arguments needed if using the default send.conf config file in the same directory.

I explain the problem again.
The send process quits directly after starting. It writes this log entry:
** Journal 314 send error - Receiving system file is larger than host - stopping
I cannot make it start with journal 315.

Why don't you manually copy the 314 server file to the other system ?

That is strange. That file has the same size on both sides in the filesystems. After the copy everythings works again.
Thank you EVa.
