Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1137) add delete options for controlling file deletion
Date Sat, 23 Apr 2011 00:56:05 GMT
add delete options for controlling file deletion

                 Key: COUCHDB-1137
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 1.0.2
            Reporter: Randall Leeds
            Priority: Minor

Even after switching to an extents-based filesystem I've noticed that deleting files after
compaction can sometimes be terribly painful and slow. Additionally, deleting large pre-compact
database and view files places extra load on the server that may be best kept to off hours.
These sorts of large databases might be impossible to run a complete compact cycle on in short
time. I'm suggesting we add an option to allow couch to leave files to be deleted in the .delete
directories so administrators can delete them at their leisure (presumably at off hours or
with a tool like ionice).
