Slide #11 of http://www.slideshare.net/Couchbase/sizing-couchbase-server-cbc2014-clean suggests using different data paths for data and indexes. What does that mean exactly ?
I see the following under the default data folder ( /opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/data )
- 1 folder per bucket
- 1 folder called @indexes
- some other files.
The bucket data and index data appears to be in separate paths already. Should they be on separate disks instead ?
Also, As per http://docs.couchbase.com/admin/admin/Misc/admin-datafiles.html ,
“The default disk path is typically used for development purposes only. If the server node is used for production, configure a different disk path.” . If the couchbase server node has just 1 disk and is mounted on “/”, does it make sense to change the “default” paths ?
