Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-1064) Couchdb view lost (generation started from scratch)

Couchdb view lost (generation started from scratch)

                 Key: COUCHDB-1064
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.2
         Environment: Erlang R14B01 (erts-5.8.2) [source] [64-bit] [smp:8:8] [rq:8] [async-threads:0]
[hipe] [kernel-poll:false]
Linux buzz 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Sep 16 15:56:38 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Debian Lenny
            Reporter: Victor Jerlin

Couch is currently doing view generation for 5 db's, with 3-4 views per db, with 30 million
documents in each.  Then I have another db with 120 million documents in.

I've noticed that couch starts more couchjs processes after a while, like it forgets that
it already has a couchjs process running for that view.
After a while(hours), it ends up running more couchjs processes than I have views.  This seems
to be because of couch forgetting about the couchjs process, and
launches another one when my crontabbed wget-script triggers view generation again.

It has now happened (a few times) that it decides to rebuild the view from scratch.

Logs from one of the times can be found at

It is whois_queue _design/by_domain that resets at 09:40:01 (and the post requests before
did not touch the design document)

I have logs from other time when it happens to another view as well.
