Summary: rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code
22)
Product: rsync
Version: 3.0.2
Platform: Other
OS/Version: AIX
Status: NEW
Severity: major
Priority: P3
Component: core
AssignedTo: wayned@samba.org
ReportedBy: schnetter@cct.lsu.edu
QAContact: rsync-qa@samba.org


I am using rsync 3.0.2 (on both ends) to copy a source tree from Mac OS (Intel)
to AIX (Power 5).

My command is

rsync --rsync-path=/work/default/eschnett/rsync-3.0.2/bin/rsync --rsh ssh
--archive --hard-links --sparse --verbose --progress --partial --stats
--compress --exclude _darcs --exclude CVS --exclude doxygen --exclude ".#*"
--exclude .DS_Store --exclude .git --exclude .svn --exclude "*~" --delete
--delete-excluded CONTRIBUTORS COPYRIGHT Makefile arrangements src lib
..gitignore AEIArrangements AEIPhysics bbhfactory bin cactus.config carpet
carpet-stable carpet-stable-2 carpet-stable-3 kranc parfiles
eschnett@zeke.loni.org:/work/default/eschnett/Calpha

After checking about 8000 files, I receive the error

sending incremental file list
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (794 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at io.c(635)
[sender=3.0.2]

With two additional --verbose options, the last screen output is

recv_generator(arrangements/AEIDevelopment/BbhIData/src/BbhCollabInitialData/t7600/Nid_gyy_SphereC1.dump,8043)
arrangements/AEIDevelopment/BbhIData/src/BbhCollabInitialData/t7600/Nid_gyy_SphereC1.dump
is uptodate
send_files(8043,
arrangements/AEIDevelopment/BbhIData/src/BbhCollabInitialData/t7600/Nid_gyy_SphereC1.dump)
recv_generator(arrangements/AEIDevelopment/BbhIData/src/BbhCollabInitialData/t7600/Nid_gyy_SphereC10.dump,8044)
arrangements/AEIDevelopment/BbhIData/src/BbhCollabInitialData/t7600/Nid_gyy_SphereC10.dump
is uptodate
send_files(8044,
arrangements/AEIDevelopment/BbhIData/src/BbhCollabInitialData/t7600/Nid_gyy_SphereC10.dump)

Here the transmission hangs. When I abort with ctrl-C, I receive

^CKilled by signal 2.
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at rsync.c(541) [sender=3.0.2]
_exit_cleanup(code=20, file=rsync.c, line=541): about to call exit(255)



This is a show-stopper for using rsync 3.0.1 and 3.0.2 on AIX. I have no such
problems on other platforms which use Linux operating systems and Intel
processors. My current work-around is to fall back to 2.6.2.
