Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-926) Compaction does not release file descriptors
Date Tue, 26 Oct 2010 14:48:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-926?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12924976#action_12924976

Russell van der Walt commented on COUCHDB-926:
----------------------------------------------

Yes, the database has views and it happens always. I'm not sure about whether the querying
has any effect, but I will put together a test case tomorrow and let you know.

>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Database Core
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
>         Environment: Ubuntu 9.04/10.4
>            Reporter: Russell van der Walt
>             Fix For: 1.0.2, 1.1

> 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.
