Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-791) Changes not written if server shutdown during delayed_commits period
Date Mon, 14 Jun 2010 17:21:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-791?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12878642#action_12878642

Damien Katz commented on COUCHDB-791:
-------------------------------------

Neither of those options is guaranteed to fully write to disk. This just isn't how CouchDB
is designed. It's crash-only, never has a shutdown phase, and if it detects an internal error,
it immediately will crash.

If you need things to be guaranteed committed, then don't use delayed commits. Otherwise you
are always at risk of losing the most recent updates.

> If the couchdb server is shutdown (couchdb -d, Ctrl+C at the console, etc) during the
delayed commits period then buffered updates are lost.
> Simple script to demonstrate the problem is:
> db=http://localhost:5984/scratch
> curl $db -X DELETE
> curl $db -X PUT
> curl $db -X POST -d '{}'
> /path/to/couchdb/bin/couchdb -d
> When couchdb is started again the database is empty.
> Affects 0.11.x and trunk branches.
