Subject Big files PUT into Subversion - encountering
Date Sat, 08 Jul 2017 13:36:20 GMT
Same system as before - 4GB RAM Intel Atom Linux box
with attached 4TB USB3 driver (yes in a USB3 port) where the svn repo's
root is.

AutoIncrement is turned on (or whatever it's called), and I'm using curl to
PUT a resource.  Like so:


while :
    time dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=15000 2>/dev/null | openssl enc
-rc4-40 -pass pass:weak > /path/to/abc
    time curl -u paul:myPassword
--upload-file /path/to/abc
    du -s -h --block-size=1G /media/thatLittle4TBdrive/svnParent/

 Fifth iteration of that loop barfed in about 1/4 of the time the transfer
would have taken :(

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<D:error xmlns:D="DAV:" xmlns:m=""
<m:human-readable errcode="200029">
Couldn't perform atomic initialization

What does that mean?  Programatically, should I just try the PUT again ?

*For those interested in stats: 6.5 mins to create each 14GB random file,
and 15 mins to PUT it into Svn (with it's 6 syncs on the server side). And
I've filled a 4TB drive up to 1.3TB so far.*
