error: cannot open ‘.git/FETCH_HEAD’: No space left on device

After moving the poudriere jail (pkg01) to the new host (r730-01), I noticed this message from Nagios: That “email found in . /var/mail/dan” message is significant. In general mail on my hosts/jails is not delivered locally. It all goes off-host. That’s why I have this Nagios check. When mail like that is found, it’s either …

using syncoid to backup ZFS snapshots – home assistant

Copies of data are good. Especially if on a different host. zfs snapshots combined with zfs send | zfs recv make replication of zfs file systems especially easy. I am already using sanoid to manage zfs snapshots. Now I’m going to use syncoid to transfer those snapshots to another host. Both sanoid and syncoid are …

Upgrading an NVMe zpool from 222G to 1TB drives

The FreshPorts dev, test, and stage websites are hosted on a server in my basement. Each instance consists of two jails: an ingress node – for pulling in new commits (and other data) into the database. a webserver node – for displaying the web pages. The new drives: Sometimes the zpool gets too close to …

da12 in my FreeBSD zfs array disappeared at :02 and came back at :04

I forgot to enable compression on ZFS

I forgot to enable compression on this FreshPorts node. I have no idea why/how. After doing this, I went to a directory with a lot of space and copied stuff around. [aws-1 dan /jails/ingress01/var/db/freshports/message-queues/archive] % sudo mv 2021_03.tar.gz 2021_03.tar.gz.tmp 21:01:28 [aws-1 dan /jails/ingress01/var/db/freshports/message-queues/archive] % sudo mv 2021_03.tar.gz.tmp 2021_03.tar.gz 21:01:38 That will free up *some* space. …

Adjusting my ZFS filesystems to conform with standard FreeBSD boot environments

Get FreeBSD 12.2 mfsBSD (because that matches the OS on slocum), burn it to a thumb drive using OSX. NOTE: the following didn’t work. I wound up not having the right values in /lib and /var/db/ I don’t know what I did wrong, but I did manage to fix them up afterwards. I suspect that …

snapshot ; ls ; destroy; dataset is busy – WTF?

I have found this bizarre situation where a FreeBSD 12.2 snapshot cannot be destroyed. This is the simple example, which works: [dan@pkg01:~] $ sudo zfs snapshot tank_fast/poudriere@snapshot-for-backup [dan@pkg01:~] $ sudo zfs destroy tank_fast/poudriere@snapshot-for-backup [dan@pkg01:~] $ This is the simple example, which fails: [dan@pkg01:~] $ sudo zfs snapshot tank_fast/poudriere@snapshot-for-backup [dan@pkg01:~] $ ls /usr/local/poudriere/.zfs/snapshot/snapshot-for-backup cache data jails …
