Cbbackupmgr merge does not complete (no errors)



I am testing out cbbackupmgr, and I’m running into “random” issues. I don’t have the logs for the previous ones, but here is one that I’m stuck on right now. When I issue a cbbackupmgr merge (along with the other parameters), the merge does it job but eventually get stuck:

Then the merge exits without any errors (or completion message). When I rerun the merge with the same start/end, it then returns without any message, but the log has errors/exception:

I created my backup with cbbackupmgr backup. I then create a few incremental backup (with no new documents inserted or changes made) and merge them together. Sometimes the merge works. Sometimes the merge fails with the above characteristics. Any idea?



First off, when cbbackupmgr doesn’t finish with a success message that almost always means there was a crash. Instead of dumping the stack to stdout we put it in the logs which is why you are finding it there. Since it’s a crash I cannot print anything to stdout. The one thing I can see is that the crash appears to happen on the boundary between cbbackupmgr and the forestdb kvstore. Exception 0xc0000005 0x0 0x2 0x7ffcc4e2eea2 points to an access violation error which is thrown when opening the data files. I haven’t seen this type of error before the way you are. Usually when I see an access violation error it is because the forestdb library isn’t linked properly. That can’t be the case here though since cbbackupmgr does usually work correctly for you. Can you let me know what version of windows you are running on and any other information about your system and setup so I can try to reproduce this? In the meantime I have filed an issue here: MB-20402.


Thanks Mike for the reply.
I also filed a request with Support (http://support.couchbase.com/requests/13630) and have been working with Jeff D. on this. In my test, it seems the problem occurs when I use CBBACKUPMGR COMPACT. If I don’t compact the backup, the problem doesn’t seem to occur.

I’m using Windows 2012 R2. This is a VM. Host hypervisor is VMware ESXi and also Windows 7 running VirtualBox. (I’m able to reproduce this on two different environments very consistently when using COMPACT.)

More information is available in Request #13630 if you have the access.

Thanks for creating the issue and looking into this.


MB-20402 was updated by Support with my comments and testing with regards to COMPACT. I also had uploaded logs in the Support ticket request 13630.
