Comment:
Link to erlang Forum is broken

  
  = Miscellaneous errors =
  
- CouchDB using a lot of memory (several hundred MB) on startup?  This one seems to especially
affect Dreamhost installs.  It's really an issue with the Erlang VM pre-allocating data structures
when ulimit is very large or unlimited.  A detailed dicussion can be found [[http://www.erlang.org/cgi-bin/ezmlm-cgi/4/46168|on
the erlang-questions list]], but the short answer is that you should decrease ulimit -n or
define ERL_MAX_PORTS to something reasonable like 1024.

  Erlang backtraces are quite "hard" to read for non-Erlangers. The list here tries to give
keywords to help you pinpointing your problem and suggests possible solutions
