Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1135) error on attempting to read from database
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2011 14:01:05 GMT


Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-1135:

Yeah, stack traces can help diagnose it better.

I think we had 2 or 3 cases before like this, trying to read a term from an offset that doesn't
point to the beginning of a serialized term. Unfortunately no one was able to reproduce them
or find any bug in the code.

The only scenario I can think of leading to this, is to have 2 Couch instances accessing and
writing to the same database file.

Nevertheless, there's a tool at which can help a bit
on the analysis.
Try to run it like this:

$ ./couchfoo N 10 /path/to/dbfile/db.couch

and report the output (it's a read only operation, so you don't need to do it offline, neverhtless
it's a good idea to make a backup of your file).
