Database error, "ERROR piecestore failed to add bandwidth usage"

Running Linux
I moved my note to a larger drive last night.
I stopped docker with the -t 300 command then i moved everything using rsync.
After changing the mount entries in fstab i rebooted and everything looked normal untill i went to the web page dashboard The “Bandwidth used this month” is empty it has a running total but no graph.

I’m seeing the following error in the logs:

2019-12-07T13:42:33.430Z ERROR piecestore failed to add bandwidth usage {“error”: “bandwidthdb error: database disk image is malformed”, “errorVerbose”: “bandwidthdb error: database disk image is malformed\n\*bandwidthDB).Add:59\n\*Endpoint).saveOrder:632\n\*Endpoint).doUpload:379\n\*drpcEndpoint).Upload:176\n\\n\*Server).doHandle:175\n\*Server).HandleRPC:153\n\*Server).ServeOne:114\n\*Server).Serve.func2:147\n\*Tracker).track:51”}

Any way to fix this?

Working my way through the databases, this might take a while

Please find the reason why this happened so you can avoid it in future. Good luck!

Finally all databases are “OK”

Just need to wait out the “ordersdb error: database is locked” error messages.

I’ll leave it runing a couple of hours, see if it sorts itseslf out. Otherwise I’ll reboot the server and see how it goes.

I just got the same error message and am attempting to repair the databases. Is it possible that something in one of the new updates could have triggered this?

Nothing at all has changed with the node, have plenty of free space and there haven’t been any reboots or stopping of the storagenode other than the ones done automatically by watchtower for updates.

How long did the above listed directions take to do “sqlite3 /storage/bandwidth.db “.read /storage/dump_all_notrans.sql”” that part? I’m running on dual xeon processors and have 72gb of ram. After i hit enter with the above command the terminal window is just sitting there. Is this expected behavior or do you think it is stuck?

If it normally takes a few min to run that command I will feel better about it. If it’s supposed to be near instant I might be in trouble.

If I remember correctly this file should grow in size & that’s how you know the command is still working.

I think @asfbhero is reading the file back into the db. So in that case the bandwidth.db should be increasing in size.

Just remember, you should replace the bandwidth.db in all commands with the name of the DB which you recovering now.

Ok, so it is increasing in size. So that’s good. If the only db that is throwing errors in the logs is bandwidth.db, that should be the only one I need to repair right?

You need to scan all the databases to just check and see if they all return ok and without errors. If there are errors then you have to backup, fix and replace the database with errors. The log error message just gives you a direction to take and db file to look at. That doesn’t mean it’s the only file with errors.

Seems that i have the same problem.
I have the newest Storj Docker Image. The Node runs for more than 13Months until now.
I do nothing and today i see that there are some problems.

Something from the logs:

This is a different issue, but we need to see more of the logs.

Okay, i open a new thread. Thanks :slight_smile:
