Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1592) Free space check for automatic compaction doesn't follow symlinks
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 18:58:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1592?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13939646#comment-13939646

Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-1592:
----------------------------------------

My instinct was "eugh" but since it's a one character change to handle many more cases the
elegance of the change outweighs the eughness of symlink chains.

> 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.
