The following bug will be corrected in the following release.

If a file, which is excluded because of a rule is deleted after being recognized from storeBackup.pl and before a stat command is called, then that stat command will fail and perl generates the message below. This stat is only made to summarize the size of all files excluded - it doesn't mean anything for the functionality of storeBackup.

Hi,

I cannot reproduce the error message.

It seems to depend on an unsuccessful stat. Can you change the source code of storeBackup.pl in the following way:

------------
{
    $exclLog->print("$relFileName\n") if $writeExcludeLog;
print "f = <$f> size = $actSize\n";
    $main::stat->incr_noExcludeRule($actSize);
    next;
}
--------------
(simply insert the print statement)

After restarting your backup please check the files listed - if they exist and if the size is printed correctly.

I think it's easier if you send me directly an email to see what's happening. Later we can summarize her. But we can also use this list if you want.

Regards, Heinz-Josef

btw, I'll not be online for the next hours.

Hi,

i get this curious log entries:

[...]
Use of uninitialized value $size in addition (+) at /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl line 7231.
Use of uninitialized value $size in addition (+) at /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl line 7231.
Use of uninitialized value $size in addition (+) at /opt/storeBackup/bin/storeBackup.pl line 7231.
[...]
The line repeats 17 times.

That seems to be no error, but i would like to know what's happening there. Should i do worry?

I'm running storeBackup on Ubuntu 12.10 daily since Nov. 2012, backing up some dirs to a second HDD. I get those log entries since Dec 29 2012. Last changed storeBackup.conf Dec 25.

Logfile and config file are attached. Usernames are replaced with user{1,2,3}.

regards,

Christian
