Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1129) file descriptors sometimes not closed after compaction
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2011 00:24:11 GMT


Dan Everton commented on COUCHDB-1129:

The database is mostly write only with occasional hits to a view. During compaction the view
will be requested a few times but always closed immediately after. So there should be nothing
holding the view open.

I'm trying to get a 1.1.1 build going but we're stuck on RHEL5 and it seems CouchDB no longer
builds on that. Possibly something to do with the Spidermonkey 1.8.5 changes but I'm still

> When I asked on IRC rnewson confirmed he'd seen the behavior also and the last comment
on 926 also suggests there are still times where this occurs.

the file and subscribing to the compaction notification.
