Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1592) Free space check for automatic compaction doesn't follow symlinks
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 13:37:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1592?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13492340#comment-13492340

Nils Breunese commented on COUCHDB-1592:
----------------------------------------

I don't think our admins would ever change the target of that symlink while applications are
running. Could CouchDB cope with something like that? Either way I still don't really see
what the problem would be. Free disk space needs to be determined. If the target of the symlink
changes the free disk space changes, but as far as I can see this is no problem since free
disk space is evaluated when compaction is started. What do you think could go wrong?

> We've got a problem with automatic compaction not running due to low diskspace according
to CouchDB. According to our system administrators there is more than enough space (more than
twice the currently used space), but the data directory is a symlink to the real data storage.
It seems CouchDB is checking the diskspace on the filesystem on which the symlink resides
instead of the diskspace on the linked filesystem.
