Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1592) Free space check for automatic compaction doesn't follow symlinks
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2014 10:20:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1592?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13937634#comment-13937634

Nils Breunese commented on COUCHDB-1592:
----------------------------------------

This issue is still impacting us. Any idea how much work this would be to fix? Sounds like
it should be easy to dereference symlinks, but sadly I don't know Erlang myself. It would
be the equivalent of running {{readlink -f /path/to/file}} in a shell, right?

> 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.
