Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1745) Make the database even safer
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 16:21:16 GMT
Dave Cottlehuber created COUCHDB-1745:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Make the database even safer
                 Key: COUCHDB-1745
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1745
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Dave Cottlehuber


While CouchDB's append-only model is very safe, underlying issues with
filesystems and hardware can still corrupt databases. CouchDB can;

* add checksums on everything (btree nodes, documents, etc)
* ship a tool to verify all checksums.
* include a repair tool (that extracts everything extractable)
* perhaps include ECC information to allow recovery from corruption.
