Subject SVN 1.6.17 dump is growing larger than repository size (approx. more than 10 times)
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2015 09:25:02 GMT
Hello Team,

I am creating Subversion 1.6.17 dump for a repository hosted in Linux
server. SVNSERVE is serving the repository. We are migrating to SVN 1.9.2.

*While creating the dump for repository of size 1.8 GB (revisions 3000+),
the dump command completes revision 119 and hangs and keep updating the
dumpfile which grows to 7-8 GBs. dump command is not moving to next
revision but kept updating the dump file. So, i just closed the putty to
stop creating the dump.*

However, I ran the svnadmin verify which completes revision 119 and take
some time to verify revision 120 and complete the verification successfully
for all the repository revisions.

Since, there is no error output I have no logs to attach. Please suggest
the work around for this situation. How can create the dump and migrate to
target server. I am planning to use rsync from the server. I will post how
it goes.

I am expecting the workaround to this situation and let me know if this is
a known issue in SVN 1.6.17. This is my active repository and created the
dump without stopping the svnserve program in the production server.
