Subject running out of space
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2012 16:56:12 GMT
Hi CouchDB mailing list,

I've been running Chef Server since about March and continue to run out of space. I've emailed
the Chef mailing list and although they were able to help, none of their answers successfully
solved my problem.

I'm running CouchDB v1.0.1:

chef-server:~$ curl localhost:5984

And I have a script running daily via cron that compacts the data and the views:

unfortunately, this has not halted the growth of used space on my couchdb partition. It doesn't
seem to be cleaning up deleted documents:

chef-server:~$ curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" localhost:5984/chef

Currently, the couchdb partition is using up 43GB of the 60GB allocated to it. Is there anything
I can do?

The server is Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS with all of the latest packages. I've tried rebooting the
server and restarting the couchdb daemon (as suggested on the chef mailing list), but to no

Any ideas?
