Re: Slurpd causes kernel panic due to huge replog file?

Ok. I suppose you are right. It sounds a bit odd to me too. However, splitting my replog file in smaller slices and slurping them didn't result the behaviour I was describing in my previous email. That's why I wanted to know if anyone else has seen similar behaviour on their systems.

However, it should
be pretty easy to just engineer a fake replog file to see if you can
reproduce the problem while tracing/debugging slurpd.

I think I could try this. On a different system though, since I can't risk my master and slave servers with this kind of experiments.
