When was the BDB database corruption observed ?
- wondering whether the corruption observed during or after the changes.
And, which are the types of changes made to the provider content ?

The full DB dump occurs at the time when the replica performs the initial
synchronization of the content. In order to further reduce the synchronizatino traffic,
the sessionlog can be set up to maintain a finite amount of history. If the replica state
covered by the sessionlog, the delete mode is used instead of the present mode.
