Hello, we are facing problems with replication.
Like once a month, our container replication is doing "full sync" instead of "incremental sync".
The container have few hundreds of GB so its really annoying.
Why it is doing full sync when initial full sync already happened.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi,

this happens if the copies are different and have not the same snapshots.
You can compare snapshots with this command

Code:
zfs send rpool/data/subvol-705-disk-1@__replicate_705-0_1600869659__ | zstreamdump

Also, compare the snapshots on both sides with list

Hello and thank you for response.

I compared snapshots on main host and replicated host, both are the same, but new replication already did ran, so its probably pointless to compare it right now, when it works...i try it when it "fails".

What do you mean by "compare on both sides with list"?
