Saw error like this:

file for sequentially reading:

Unfortunately, GetSortedWalFiles (used by Backups, Checkpoint, etc.)
relies on no file deletions happening while its operating, which
means not only disabling (more) deletions, but ensuring any pending
deletions are completed. Two fixes related to this:

* There was a gap in several places between decrementing
pending_purge_obsolete_files_ and incrementing bg_purge_scheduled_ where
the db mutex would be released and GetSortedWalFiles (and others) could
get false information that no deletions are pending.

* The fix to #8591 (disabling deletions in GetSortedWalFiles) seems
incomplete because it doesn't prevent pending deletions from occuring
during the operation (if deletions not already disabled, the case that
was to be fixed by the change).

Pull Request resolved: #9208

Test Plan:
existing tests (it's hard to write a test for interleavings
that are now excluded - this is what stress test is for)

RocksDB: A Persistent Key-Value Store for Flash and RAM Storage

CircleCI Status TravisCI Status Appveyor Build status PPC64le Build Status

RocksDB is developed and maintained by Facebook Database Engineering Team. It is built on earlier work on LevelDB by Sanjay Ghemawat ( and Jeff Dean (

This code is a library that forms the core building block for a fast key-value server, especially suited for storing data on flash drives. It has a Log-Structured-Merge-Database (LSM) design with flexible tradeoffs between Write-Amplification-Factor (WAF), Read-Amplification-Factor (RAF) and Space-Amplification-Factor (SAF). It has multi-threaded compactions, making it especially suitable for storing multiple terabytes of data in a single database.

Start with example usage here:

See the github wiki for more explanation.

The public interface is in include/. Callers should not include or rely on the details of any other header files in this package. Those internal APIs may be changed without warning.
