In Topic: protect table: regex capture strings?

We can easily do that if we need to; I was just hoping there was something native. Thanks.

In Topic: Max journal sequence number?

19 November 2018 - 10:05 PM

Thanks, Matt. We want the server down so that we can backup *everything* in Helix from a known state- metadata and versioned files in particular, but also journals, logs, etc. This server is dedicated to backups.
We already run the SDP, including the offline/primary metadata swaps.
When we spun the current servers up, ZFS was not ready for prime time (we were moving from Solaris (where we used snapshots) to Linux). We tried doing LVM snapshots with XFS, but at least on the RHEL kernels we had available at the time, removing an older snapshot would often lock up, requiring a reboot, which took a looong time because of the wedged volume manager. Since we have not yet gone to edge/commit (for several reasons), we only have to backup the one server.

The initial question is for a broader monitoring issue, since links can go down, a remote server can go offline for many reasons, etc.

In Topic: brokers: filter runs on one, fails on another

The user was never logged in when the scripts ran, even though they were definitely logged in. It turns out that something is different about the Unix user's perl environment, such that P4TICKETS was not set when running perl as that user on that host. Adding the env var solves the problem.

Also, within the filter, I have tried setting the port to master:ourport, replica:ourport, and localhost:ourport .All of these work on M if I run them, from the command line (as myself or p4). All of them fail if I run them in the filter.

In Topic: Connect to Server Failed: Operation Cancelled By User

Agreed; this really sounds like a firewall issue. Do the server logs show a connection attempt? What kind of firewall are you running on server and laptop?
