Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1592) Free space check for automatic compaction doesn't follow symlinks
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 12:41:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1592?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13492297#comment-13492297

Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1592:
------------------------------------------

Well if the reason is to swithch easily to an alternate disk, then the resolution to an absolute
path could be problematic. My question doesn't imply anything about control or to be able
to change that but the why this is done. So we can make sure to find an appropriate solution.

> 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.
