I’m trying to figure out the conversion process to qdb, would appreciate a quick rundown on how it’s supposed to work.
I ran eos_ns_convert on a node in “bulkload” mode using our production metadata, this finished in 340077s (~ 4 days, not sure if this is expected)
That process created the state machine but not the raft-journal, so when I switched it to raft mode and restarted, it kept crashing and complaining about not being able to find the raft journal, to fix this (maybe??) I ran quarkdb-journal --create manually.
It booted fine after that, so I added two other (empty) nodes to the cluster, but then it decided one of the empty nodes should be leader, so I guess it didn’t pick up on the stuff I spent four days loading maybe I missed a step somewhere?
I’m fine with running up a completely new/ empty cluster, but I can’t find much info on converting an existing namespace other than some hints from Georgios and Herve (ty!) There seems to be some pickiness on what folders can or can’t exist in each mode as well, it’d be nice to have more info on that.
