Repeated occurrences of these log messages isn't supposed to be normal,
Oct 6 05:01:03 buty innd: overview!:17:proc:19537 cant write Resource temporarily unavailable
Oct 6 05:01:03 buty innd: overview!:17:proc:19537 blocked sleeping 120
Oct 6 05:03:03 buty innd: overview!:17:proc:19537 wakeup
Sometimes innd spawns a new overchan (when reloading ~news/etc/newsfeeds I
guess) and saves some data in ~news/spool/outgoing/overview!.
(1) Does running `overchan overview!' in that directory cause any harm,
besides the overview not being numbered correctly and clients possibly
(2) Whenever I do that, I get at least one "overchan malformed token"
message similar to the following:
news% mv overview\! ov && overchan ov && rm ov
overchan malformed token, @news.worldonline.nl> <7tgli3$71l$1 at nclient7-gui.server.ntli.net> 1212 13 Xref: news.wanadoo.nl alt.music.blur:76741
(exit code is still 0 though)
Should I worry about that? It looks like innd doesn't align stuff
properly. That article isn't in the overview database.
Strangely enough overchan seems to lag more often when it's reniced to -5.
I guess the scheduler in FreeBSD 4.0-CURRENT needs some work still..
Thanks in advance,
