EMC has issued ETA 187815: Documentum: Under certain error conditions, xDB may stop writing log records to the transaction log files potentially causing data loss, database corruption, and recovery issues

This is an xDB version 10.5.0 transaction log manager component issue. A situation may occur (for example, “no space left on the device”,  OutOfMemoryError, or other error conditions) in which the xDB server does not halt, but stops writing log records to the transaction log files. These missing transaction logs may cause data corruption errors, errors during read-only transactions, and errors during xDB startup/recovery.

The ETA contains a tool and long set of steps to follow to identify the problem.

I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
