The most important information would be your CouchDB version, you can
get that by requesting "/".

CouchDB is known to handle 100s of GBs in a single data file with no
issues, so I doubt size is the issue.

Without the logs the other thing that could help is some guesses about
whether a particular action is causing the crash.
