OSSV Linux Error "Unexpected read select while sending"

I have implemented a DR solution to use OSSV (v3.0.1) to backup some Linux servers. After the initial baseline the snapvault updates run fine for a couple of days but then the /home partition fails to update with error "Unexpected read select while sending". All other partitions (/var, /boot, /root) continue to update fine. I presume it might be a size related issue since the /home partition gets to 500-600GB in size. This has happened on two servers so far which are both Dell R620 16GB RAM. 6 x 300gb 2.5" sas drives in hardware RAID10.


I have a case open with NetApp who asked for trace logs which I have uploaded (they are massive). We tried setting the volume language to en.UTF-8 in case that was an issue, but to no avail. There is plenty of bandwidth and don't believe its a network issue. The solutions uses a vFiler as a snapvault secondary.


Any help, comments, suggestions would be appreciated as this is really scuppering my new DR strategy.
