Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1141) Docs deleted via PUT or POST do not have contents removed.
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 11:16:03 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1141:

To add another client issue about this behaviour, if people want to make sure the doc content
is emptied on bulk doc it will imply we remove all properties except _id, and _rev or create
a new new empty doc before sending this doc, which would slow down the process a lot.

> If a doc is deleted via -X DELETE, the resulting doc contains only id/rev_deleted:true.
However, if a doc is deleted via PUT or POST, through adding _deleted:true, the entire contents
of the doc remains stored. Even after compaction, the original document contents remain.
> This issue is causing databases with large docs to become bloated over time, as the original
doc contents remain in the database even after being deleted.
