Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-839) [PATCH] Couchdb startup script should support a erl startup options flag
Date Wed, 28 Jul 2010 23:29:16 GMT


Randall Leeds commented on COUCHDB-839:

I've brought this up a couple of times and it was shot down for the following reason.

On a system that utilizes /etc/defaults/couchdb or similar you can export ERL_FLAGS or ERL_AFLAGS
environment there. Similarly, you can export ERL_MAX_PORTS or ERL_MAX_ETS_TABLES directly
rather than pass them as flags.

On a less straightforwardly supported init setup it's on you to create your own wrapper script
to do this.

> It seems that the couchdb script does not support any options to pass to the erlang vm.
Would be nice to allow a options flag and document on the wiki that it exists. It is important
because large-scale deployments of couchdb need to pass some limits on to erlang. For example,
I am using a -O option of: -O "+P 65536 -env ERL_MAX_ETS_TABLES 60000 -env ERL_MAX_PORTS 60000"
