I am also using postgresql in my application and also facing file object
I already discussed several times with Richard Huxton, and ended without any
Here I am briefing my problem, see if u find any clue about it.
I am storing/retrieving my file in postgresql using lo_export() and
after few weeks (as application is being used - number of file objects in
database also grows) my file object gets corrupted. And I have no clue about
which causes this problem.
I confirmed the file corruption by the following query,
sfrs2=> select loid, pageno, length(data) from pg_largeobject where loid =
101177 and pageno = 630;
loid | pageno | length
101177 | 630 | 181
But actually the result of the above query before corruption(ie, immediately
after file object added to table)
fasp_test=> select loid, pageno, length(data) from pg_largeobject where loid
= 106310 and pageno = 630;
loid | pageno | length
106310 | 630 | 205
I uploaded same file in both(sfrs2, fasp_test) databases. The first one
result is after the corruption. and the later is before corruption.
You also confirm you problem like this. And I strongly believe that, there
is some bug in PostgreSQL.
Kindly don't forget to alert me once u find solution/cause.
