Version 6.80 Beta 9 Available...

Postby dexter » Fri Sep 22, 2017 11:10 pm

Quade added a new feature to Beta 9, the search history is now saved and displayed separately depending on if you are searching on subject or searching on poster. Other than that, more tweaks and fixes.

Summary:
  • Fixed issue with Sonarr communication with Newsbin.
  • Updated Zlib, Prce and SSL libraries.
  • Fixed issue in Sonarr interface where it wasn't saving the NZB's to the NZB Folder as it should.
  • Fixed internal crash issue with certain really old GZ files.
  • New feature, choosing "Subject" or "Poster" searching now has separate histories displayed instead of all combined in one list.
  • Fixed crash issue when trying to hit help from options menu.
  • Fixed issue with "Load Older Posts" replacing instead of adding to search results.
Download from the Newsbin Beta Page.

If you find any issues, please reply to this thread or use our Technical Support Contact Form.

Had problems with headers in B8, B9 seems to have the same issue. (i.e. Downloads but doesn't store/display)
Having deleted all the old .db3's I found most of the header d/l's would again read.
But not all.
I have been unable to read headers from some groups (e.g. a.b.teevee) - I see 400k+ headers d/l'd but the tab reads 0 & shows nothing. The db3's in the folder total 56k after 2 days of this.

What to do?

-----------
Did a clean install seems to have sorted it out... :wink:

So far so good with the sticking gz files that appeared in B8. Sites pretty quiet this weekend so will see what next week brings.

a.b.teevee (and a.b.multimedia) is under attack again, this slows down B7 and earlier but B8 & B9 totally grinds to a halt, you can see it in the Cache number, the number in parenthesis is the number of header files to parse.

Downgrading to B7 makes it move forward again, albeit slowly. If Quade or Dexter wants it I have a number of header files that will stop B8 & B9 in it's track, the first one was stuck (one core at 100% ) on a i7-6700 for 15+ minutes before I gave up this time but I think it was stuck multiple hours on it before, in contrast B7 parses that downloaded header file in about a minute on the same machine (which is slow but not a problem).

I've not figured out a pattern to reject the posts that are breaking NBP's parsing this time, I do note that downloading headers again using an header Subject Accept filter with "#a.b.teevee@EFNet" (IE reject everything else) in those groups makes it work in B9 which rules out about 50% of the headers... Then I found that B7 didn't have the issue so I've not digged deeper.

I suspect that's because you've not downloaded older headers, these kind of attacks tends to come in waves and it's not currently "on". But will probably be again soon if history is any guide.

Going back and forth between B7 and B8 is going to cause a grind. B7 deletes an index and B8 puts it back in place. So, you really don't want to do that. If you're going to experiment b6 to b8 would probably be better.

As for the grind, I'm not seeing it in Teevee. Are you re-downloading headers for the entire group?

I wrote myself a more specific note so I remember, Autopar enabled, unrar disabled.

Just an observation of something with no obvious detrimental effect on the use of Newsbin Pro Version 6.80 Beta 9.

After exiting from Newsbin after it has finished processing the importation of new message headers, the downloading and processing of all downloads, and with the cache displaying 200/200 (0), the following files remain in the Newsbin Data folder:

DownloadMarker.DB3-shm
DownloadMarker.DB3-wal
DownloadsV2.db3-shm
DownloadsV2.db3-wal

I know that they are sqlite3 files created during the processing of the DownloadMarker.DB3 and DownloadsV2.db3 files, but I don't remember ever before seeing those files in earlier versions of Newsbin after it's been closed.

Why do they remain after Newsbin has been closed?
MS Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit - ASUS P8Z77-V LE; Intel i7-3770K 3.5 GHz; 16.0GB DDR3; 512MB EVGA GeForce GTX 760; SAMSUNG 850 500GB SATA III SSD; 2 X HGST 3TB 7200RPM 6.0Gb/s SATA III.

As you point out, they're used by Sqlite. As for why they remain, it's because Sqlite wants them to remain. If you delete the WAL files you'll probably corrupt the DB's.

Issue with autopar, might be Wine related but doubt it as b8 was OK.
It completes the autopar successfully but leaves the pars in the download list.

I'm currently seeing a new problem with quite a few posts reported as incomplete when they aren't. If I right-click on the incomplete posts & select properties, it shows all parts available. I'm using 6.80B9 Build 4978 on 32bit Windows 10.

Not quite sure what you mean by saying that they are incomplete but properties shows they are not. It is worth pointing out that just because you have headers for a post it does not mean that the underlying files they refer to are actually present on a server.

In the headers list, a number of headers are marked as "Incomplete. Missing information needed for download, [* files, * 7pars]", with an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle.
When I right click on the supposedly incomplete header and select Properties, I get, "All Posts Available" in the "Missing:" box. If they are all available, then it shouldn't show as incomplete in the list.

What CPU and how much RAM does your system have? How many items in your download list?

We do tend to see more crash issues with AMD CPU's...

OK issue with autopar, If you have unrar enabled and a rar is part of the par set then it is unpacked BEFORE it is checked (by autopar). Doesn't affect zip's just rar's.
I have some files that are doing that. Several files with a support rar (containing images) the rar is unpacked resulting in the autopar failing.

Yeah, that's a hard problem. You want singletons to unrar but you don't want them unraring if they have a par file backing them. I haven't come up with a good solution. I could avoid deleting singletons rars which would allow a later PAR file to catch them but that means no cleanup for singletons that have no PAR files. If I did that, I'd have to somehow figure out how to not unrar twice. The other option is to simply not unrar if there are no PARS present.

That depends on download order. With grouped files it's easy to associate files with PARS. When the files aren't grouped, it depends on whether the PAR downloaded before or after the file.

"Waiting for a PAR" is the same thing as simply not processing the file in cases where no PAR exists.

Don't you have some flag that shows whether par's are included in the current download set? If so you could use that as a wait.
But your call as you know the s/w. :wink:

You need the PAR to determine if a file belongs to the PAR set so, as long as you download the par first from the set of files, it should ID them as having a par and not unrar till the end. Note the "Should". I haven't tested it recently.
