The Dude 6.43.7 - Database IO disk error

Wed May 01, 2019 1:55 am

Hi All,

So we have run The Dude for many years (10?) and over the years the system seems to have developed more and more bugs. Over the last year I have rebuilt the dude manually from scratch twice. Once on a VMware cluster on CHR with fast storage and once on a 1036 with an SSD.

First problem - Randomly the dude will freeze, any addition login attempts will fail simply stating (connecting) unable to log into the 1036 router via Winbox. Only solution is an SSH session and a /system reboot. I have not found what causes this, it has been happening on all Host and storage types.

Second (New) problem. Database IO Error Dude crash. Was happening once a week, is now happening once a day. Again, a reboot of the router will fix the problem for around 24 hours. I have a successful dump of the database it completed with no errors.

The dude is integral to our support team, I would appreciate any help in this matter.

Thanks,

I have the same problems during the few last years. My database has fastly grown up, has around 1 GB, and is not able to run anymore longer than 2 minutes from dude restart. Then the dude stops with the database malfunction error message.

Years ago I provided all the support (database, access to the server...) to mikrotik in order to help them to find and correct the reason. They did nothing.

I have had this problem at times, i just rebuild my database, deleting all the history as I don't need it. SQLite database is not very efficient when it gets large. Make a backup of your database and try the recovery method below, it will keep all of your devices/map, but get rid of everything else.

Hi guys

Any solution to this?
I'm designing some major customer solution right now.
I've build monitoring around LibreNMS,- but recently changed to Dude.
So far, running everything with a RB1100AHx4 Dude edition.

Reading this worries me :?

Cheers

You are crazy. You cant sell service based on a discontinued Product. We use the DUDE for us and it works (with some problems). But I would never sell this as part of a solutions to customers. If there is a problem, customer would win every legal proceedings.
In a commercial project I would use a tool with support like PRTG. If the customer does not want to pay the price for professional SW I would not do the job as I am not seeking for problems.

Hi

Thank's for your answer, very solid arguments you have.

It's a bit sad, I like the Dude, I would wish Mikrotik realised that they must maintain the "whole packet".
We want solutions, router, switches, management etc.

Like a friend told me,- Mikrotik is too expensive. The hardware is cheap, but everything takes time. Poor documentation, complicated setups.
It's cheaper to buy a more expensive Juniper. Saves lots of engineering hours. Configuration is mostly copy/paste from some website.

Me,- I like Mikrotik :)
