Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Compaction" by BrianCandler
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2009 09:12:52 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "Compaction" page has been changed by BrianCandler.
The comment on this change is: Note about view compaction.


  In the future, a single CouchDB node can be changed to stop or fail other updates if the
write load is too heavy for it to complete in a reasonable time.
+ == View compaction ==
+ There is a compact views feature:
+ {{{
+ POST /dbname/_compact/designname
+ }}}
+ This compacts the views from the current version of the design document, but old versions
(from when the design document had a different hash) remain.
+ If you want to remove old views from disk then
+ {{{
+ POST /dbname/_view_cleanup
+ }}}
