Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1642) Unmanaged file handle resource
Date Sat, 12 Jan 2013 00:26:12 GMT
James Bowery created COUCHDB-1642:

             Summary: Unmanaged file handle resource
                 Key: COUCHDB-1642
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
            Reporter: James Bowery

Attempting to use couchapp, I ran into an issue that a lot of other people have encountered,
and that is the fact that Erlang's aggressive parallelism inside couchdb is not tempered by
awareness of the limit on the number of file handles that can be allocated in the OS.  In
ordinary -- serialized -- systems this isn't much of a problem.  Perhaps this is actually
an Erlang issue but it does crop up in couchdb due to the potential handling of large numbers
of files.
