Subject Replicated db copy takes 2 times more space
Date Tue, 26 Oct 2010 03:38:23 GMT
Hey Guys,

I've been playing with CouchDB and found something very disturbing for
me. I have a database with 1.5M documents, i decided to make a backup
and created a new database, then replicated from the original. The end
result was that original weights 0.9GB but the replica is 2.5GB! Each
document has only 1 revision and I'm running 0.12a. I've also tried
compaction, but nothing changes.

Is this expected behavior and if so, can someone point me at a
document on why could this be?
