Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-397) POST _restart only restarts couch_server process
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2009 19:55:47 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-397:

Now I'm confused even more.

I get the notion of how terminate_child is working in terms of the terminate/restart semantics
but you're losing me with the discussion about linking the processes to get them to shutdown
when couch_server goes down. Why would we consider that when we can instead restart the secondary
services directly as trunk does currently and the patch you have on 398 does. Also, does the
patch for 398 mean that that works? In your earlier comment you made it sound like that didn't

Regardless, I definitely think you're right that we should sit down and discuss what exactly
needs to get restarted on on a call to _restart. On the other hand, should _restart even be
enabled by default? AFAIK it was just put in for testing, are there use cases for making it

 It does not restart any of the other myriad processes CouchDB relies on for operation.  In
particular, this causes the stats test suite to occasionally fail, because the stats counters
do not get reset.  The test that fails is
> Assertion 'open_databases > 0 && max >= open_databases, name' failed: should
keep the same number of open databases when reaching the max_dbs_open limit
