|Subject||Re: [firebird-support] help to repair a corrupted database|
Gfix visits each page of the database, so 90 minutes is not so long if your disk subsystem is not based SSD.
In general, follow these steps
Check firebird.log too - gfix reports there its findings.
hi, i'm trying to repair a corrupted db for firebird 2.5.2, the database file is of about 30 gb.
i have disconnected all the user, i did a copy of the file and then i executed the command
gfix -validate 'dbname' with the credentials of the user that created the db (not the sysdba)
now the gfix process is 90 minutes that is on 0 cpu usage and 1 mb of ram but the firebird process sometime works,
is the gfix process freezed or it's normal? can i terminate it and retry or maybe this can add other problems to my database file?
