Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-968) Duplicated IDs in _all_docs
Date Tue, 30 Nov 2010 19:34:28 GMT

Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-968:
-------------------------------------------

@Adam,

Gotchya. Reading the code I kept getting confused on what the semantics of high_seq were supposed
to be. I'd always assumed it was just an opaque number so we don't get cyclic revision trees,
but there appears to be more to it than that. I was also fairly confused about how it relates
to update_seq in a few places that seemed a bit funky.

> We have a database, which is causing serious trouble with compaction and replication
(huge memory and cpu usage, often causing couchdb to crash b/c all system memory is exhausted).
Yesterday we discovered that db/_all_docs is reporting duplicated IDs (see [1]). Until a few
minutes ago we thought that there are only few duplicates but today I took a closer look and
I found 10 IDs which sum up to a total of 922 duplicates. Some of them have only 1 duplicate,
others have hundreds.
> Some facts about the database in question:
> * ~13k documents, with 3-5k revs each
> * all duplicated documents are in conflict (with 1 up to 14 conflicts)
> * compaction is run on a daily bases
> * several thousands updates per hour
> * multi-master setup with pull replication from each other
> * delayed_commits=false on all nodes
> * used couchdb versions 1.0.0 and 1.0.x (*)
> Unfortunately the database's contents are confidential and I'm not allowed to publish
it.

> There were two (old) servers (1.0.0) in production (already having the replication and
compaction issues). Then two servers (1.0.x) were added and replication was set up to bring
them in sync with the old production servers since the two new servers were meant to replace
the old ones (to update node.js application code among other things).
