Which versions of CouchDB and Chef are you running? The Couch release
packaged for CentOS 5 (0.11.5, I think?) is quite ancient and known to have
such issues. If you’re having this problem in a post-1.0 release, that would
be more interesting.
That said – I’ve had a crashing CouchDB (pre-1.0), and no component other
than CouchDB itself has needed restart. (Further, if you use the
bootstrap-server recipe to deploy your server, Couch – like other
components – will be under process supervision and automatically

I have experienced multi crashes of couchdb on my chef-server. I dont know
why, there is no log, no trace no indication from couchdb.
My database is around 30 GB and the server is redhat 5.5 having 3 GB
I heard that erlang sometime kill processes dueto lack of resource or other
contention, and restart them automatically. But in my case
the couchdb process (mochiweb I think) that faciliates database access via
http simply dies and I have restart couchdb entirely.
But the problem from Chef side is that Chef server can not re-connect to
couchdb again and I have to restart chef-server-api then chef-server-webui
Anyone is facing similar problem?
