> Uploading attachment that is bigger than disk space that left for CouchDB data causes
unstoppable memory consuming. For document updating in this case he just silently fails with
{{badmatch,{error,enospc}} in logs.
> Steps to reproduce:
> 1. Simulate small disk. I've done it with next commands:
> mkdir /var/lib/couchdb/sandbox
> chown couchdb /var/lib/couchdb/sandbox
> mount -t tmpfs -o size=20m tmpfs /var/lib/couchdb/sandbox
> 2. Create database with name e.g. sandbox/deadman
> 3. Create new document and upload attachment with size >=20MB
> 4. watch free and get ready to kill CouchDB
> As for me CouchDB may easily consume 8GB RAM and 3GB of swap for described above conditions.
> Expected behaviour: not so fatal.
