Subject View files 3x larger when moving from CouchDB 1.2 to 1.4
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 19:00:29 GMT

I replicated the databases of a CouchDB 1.2 server to a brand new CouchDB 1.4 server. However,
I noticed that the hidden view directories now take up about 3 times more space than before.
For example on the 1.2 database one of the hidden view directories took 30GB and now it takes
90GB. What is the reason for this drastic file size increase? Can I change a setting to have
it behave as 1.2?

I have run view compaction without getting a significant change.

Best regards
