Subject Deletion of documents
Date Thu, 12 May 2016 19:22:37 GMT

I have a CouchDB 2.0 cluster. I notice when I delete documents, Fauxton displays a warning
next to the # of Docs. Here is an example of the warning: "This database has just 1 docs and
3 deleted docs”. What does it mean and is this a problem?

Also, how do I remove deleted documents from the database? So far the only way I found is
to run a _purge command on each shard on each node in the cluster. Is this the correct way?
Are there better ways to do it?

Thank you,
