I clicked "Compact" in futon for my 11G database at 9:04 AM EST:
[Mon, 02 Mar 2009 14:04:32 GMT] [info] [<0.59.0>] Starting compaction for db "melkjug"
An hour and a half later it was 85% finished and then the following was output to stderr:
heart: Mon Mar 2 10:33:20 2009: heart-beat time-out.
/usr/bin/couchdb: line 255: echo: write error: Broken pipe
heart: Mon Mar 2 10:33:22 2009: Executed "/usr/bin/couchdb -k". Terminating.
I am retaining my 4.3G melkjug.couch.compact file in case it's useful in debugging this.
