Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-926) Compaction does not release file descriptors
Date Tue, 26 Oct 2010 08:26:21 GMT
Compaction does not release file descriptors

                 Key: COUCHDB-926
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
         Environment: Ubuntu 9.04/10.4
            Reporter: Russell van der Walt

When couch compacts a database, file descriptors of the deleted files are left open, causing
the freed disk space to not be released to the system. With regular compaction, the system
eventually runs out of disk space.

There is a conversation thread in the user mailing list titled "Couch not releasing deleted
files" that gives more insight into the problem, but I have been unable to find a bug report
for it, so please accept my apologies if this has already been dealt with.
