      Gentoo Linux, CouchDB built using standard ebuild. Rebuilt July 2011.

      Description

      When replicating databases (pull replication), CouchDB will silently crash. I suspect a memory leak is leading to the crash, because I watch the beam process slowly creep up in RAM usage, then the server dies.

      For the crashing server, the log on "debug" doesn't seem very helpful. It says (with manually scrubbed server address):

      Then, when I restart CouchDB, and restart the node.js program that is setting up the replication jobs, the crashed replication job picks up where it left off and completes just fine. Again, I scrubbed my server addresses in this log snippet.:

      Letting that replication program run, and watching top, CouchDB's total share of RAM crept up to 70%, then it crashed.

      Again, the log on the crashing server isn't helpful (more or less the same as above)

      The replication program gets through about 8 to 12 databases before it crashes.

      Each database (when replicated to the target server) takes up on average around 700MB, un-compacted.

      The databases are all similar (annual data for detectors), with one doc per day's data. Each document is around 700K.

      If there is any more information (or more helpful information) I can provide, please let me know.
