Subject how to tell whether a couchdb database is worth compacting?
Date Sat, 15 May 2010 19:40:56 GMT
Last night, I watched a _compact command take 1 hour 40 minutes to
turn a 38GB couchdb file into a 36GB couchdb file.

Is there any way of determining whether a compaction is worth
starting, before you issue the command to do so?

Also, is there any way of determining what the last time was at which
a compaction occurred?
