Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1243) Compact and copy feature that resets changes
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 21:48:27 GMT
Compact and copy feature that resets changes

                 Key: COUCHDB-1243
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 1.1, 1.0.1
         Environment: Ubuntu, but not important
            Reporter: Henrik Hofmeister

After running db and view compaction on a 7K doc db with 6+ mio. changes - it takes up 0.8
GB. If copying the same documents to a new db (get and bulk insert) - the same date with 7K
changes takes up 40 mb. That is a huge difference. Has been verified on 2 db's that the difference
is more than 65 times the size of data.

A "Compact and copy" feature that copies only documents, and resets the changes for at db
would be very nice to try and limit the disk usage a little bit. (Our current test environment
takes up nearly 100 GB... )
