Subject CouchDB Replica Size
Date Fri, 09 Oct 2015 21:55:03 GMT
Why would a new target replica of a CouchDB database be over twice the
size in the filesystem as the source database after the replication is
finished? I have a CouchDB database that has 2.5 million documents,
and takes up about 597MB on the filesystem. When I replicate to
another database on the same system, the size of the replica is 1.4GB.
I have deleted and recreated both the source and target databases from
scratch, and populated the source. So the replica is totally new, and
doesn't have any other data in it.
