Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-753) Add config option for view compact dir
Date Fri, 14 May 2010 16:20:43 GMT


Till Klampaeckel commented on COUCHDB-753:

I admit, I haven't really thought this through. My issue is that sometimes people run out
of disk space with compaction.

"You" (not necessarily you or CouchDB) could do something like block writes etc. when a compact
is about to replace the database dir. Expose something from the server via JSON?

> CouchDB creates a "foo.view.compact" file in the view directory ("view_index_dir") when
you run compact against a view.
> I'd really like to be able to specify another directory where this ".compact" file is
created and worked on. This is especially helpful when it's difficult to run compaction because
you run out of disk space on the same device.
