Increase max bucket size

The documentation for Couchbase Server 3.0.1 says:
Max Buckets per Cluster Default is 10 (can be adjusted by users) (http://docs.couchbase.com/admin/admin/Misc/limits.html)

However I cannot find any documentation on how to do this. We would like to be able to have multiple buckets for development purposes. Can anyone point me to the instructions on how to increase this?

Thanks!

Hello,
Seems like is posible but not recommended.
Take a look at: How to set Max Buckets per Cluster to more than 10?

Hi Arturo,

Yes I understand it is not recommended. We only want to make this change for development purposes not in production.

It looks like it should be a setting somewhere but I haven’t been able to find it yet. Any help in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,
Try:
To see actual values

curl -u Administrator:password http://localhost:8091/internalSettings

To change max buckets to 15 (by example)

curl -v -X POST http://Administrator:password@localhost:8091/internalSettings -d maxBucketCount=15

Tell me if work for you.
Thanks
Arturo

Hi,

Sorry for posting on top of an old post, but wanted to know if you faced any issue after increasing the max bucket count and how much did you increase it to?

We are planning to increase it to 75 or 100 buckets for reasons similar as yours. i.e. for developers. Otherwise we will need to setup one couchbase instance for each developer which is an overkill.

Thanks
