Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-999) Detect and repair view indexes with duplicates in them
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 20:35:45 GMT


Adam Kocoloski updated COUCHDB-999:

    Attachment: 0001-Crash-if-duplicates-are-detected-during-view-compact.patch

Here's an untested attempt at a patch to crash the view compactor if duplicates are encountered.
 The exit message in the logs will instruct the user to rebuild the affected view group.

> In COUCHDB-968 we discovered and fixed a bug that could introduce duplicate documents
in a database.  Under certain circumstances these duplicate documents would introduce duplicate
entries in view indexes.
> We can detect duplicates in the view group by looking for duplicate entries in the docid
=> view key btree.  We can try to repair the view indexes by removing the extra keys from
the views, or we can just report that duplicates exist in the view group and direct the user
to rebuild that group.  We might incorporate this code into the view compactor, or we might
release it as a separate standalone tool.
> I think my personal preference is to include any repair functionality in the view compactor.
 A separate standalone tool that simply reports the presence of duplicates would also be a
nice thing to have.
