Subject Re: View files 3x larger when moving from CouchDB 1.2 to 1.4

It's likely you've not got compression running/set e.g. snappy or similar.

Any more details?

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?
