Subject RE: CouchDB Process
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 10:15:15 GMT

        The many processes of couchjs.exe, couchspawnkillable.exe (about 30 processes) is
created in Windows Task Manager and is continue increasing in a unit of time.   
         After more investigation,  it seems like the more processes the more memory consumption,
then the performance of server is quite slow down so I have to kill
         this process sometimes .  
         Can anyone tell me about the behavior of this  created process  (couchjs.exe, couchspawnkillable.exe)

      CouchDB Version :  1.0.2
       OS : Windows 2003 Server Service Pack 2

These are utility processes that CouchDB needs to do all its work, they are fine :)

couchjs is what we call a "query server" that evaluates all the JavaScript (or other language)
that you can run inside CouchDB.

couchspawnkillable helps with process management of these couchjs processes.
