Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-2040) Compaction fails when copying attachment
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2014 13:16:37 GMT
Igor Klimer created COUCHDB-2040:

             Summary: Compaction fails when copying attachment
                 Key: COUCHDB-2040
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
            Reporter: Igor Klimer

Orignal discussion from the user mailing list:

During database compaction, the process fails at about 50% with the following error:
(CouchDB 1.2.0, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise).
After server and CouchDB upgrade the error is still the same:
(CouchDB 1.5.0, Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.8.0-33-generic x86_64)).

There was one prior attempt at compaction that failed because of insufficient disk space:
After this initial failure, I've made sure that there's sufficient disk space for the .compact

The .compact file was always removed before trying compaction again.
At the request of Robert Samuel Newson, I've also tried with an empty .compact file - the
results were the same:

Our I/O subsystem consists of some RAID5 matrices - the admins claim that they've been running
error-free since inception ;) We have yet to run a parity check, since that'd require taking
the matrix offline and I'd rather not do that without exhausting other options.

Config files from the 1.2.0/Windows server (since that's where the fault must have occured):

Other than the default delayed_commits set to true, there are no options that could affect
fsync()ing and such.

I've run:
curl localhost:5984/ecrepo/_changes?include_docs=true
curl localhost:5984/ecrepo/_all_docs?include_docs=true
and both calls succeeded, which would suggest that a faulty (incorrect checksum/length) is
at fault somewhere.
