https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261277 Bug ID: 261277 Summary: locate(1) may not work on very large databases Product: Base System Version: CURRENT Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: wosch@FreeBSD.org While testing locate(1) with a very large database (>2GB apparent size) I noticed that it sometimes does not work with mmap (default). Workaround: use the -s flag and run with stdio library (ca. 30% slower than mmap). Note: you should not be affected by this issue if you have less than 500 mio files (or < 30TB) on your partition. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
