--------------------------------------------------

  
  == Database Compaction ==
  
- Compaction compresses the database file by removing unused sections created during updates.
Old revisions of documents are also removed from the database though a small amount of meta
data is kept for use in conflict [[Replication|replication]] during replication. The number
of revisions (default of 1000) can be configured using the ``_revs_limit`` URL endpoint (see
[[HTTP_database_API#Accessing_Database-specific_options]]). It is available since version
0.8-incubating.

  Compaction is manually triggered per database. Support for queued compaction of multiple
databases is planned. Please note, that compaction will be run as a background task.
