Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1638) Memory overwhelming usage on attachment uploading when disk space ran out
Date Sun, 06 Jan 2013 21:56:12 GMT


Alexander Shorin commented on COUCHDB-1638:

> 1.3 and 1.4 do not currently exist, so I've dropped them from 'affects'
I know and they was mentioned in dropdown menu as unreleased, but wouldn't this makes harder
to classify issue per releases?

1.3.0: 88c52b23282ee37b1cc3720feee596fe1b938ea4
1.4.0: 4b20418391a9a77012ff74c8064f3da910c310fb

> 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.
