membase delete bucket doesn't actually free the RAM being used.
I have the following job running every hour:
create 5 buckets with a new version number and delete the 5 buckets created last hour. I assumed that deleting a bucket would free the memory that was used by the bucket but that doesn't seem to happen. And I see that my RAM and swap keeps getting fuller every hour till membase just sort of goes down.
I need the bucket delete to actually delete bucket. I read in some thread that 1.7.x onwards creating and deleting anything less than 20 buckets shouldn't be a problem. But I seem to hit problems with just 5 buckets.
Also can I know if there is a some garbage collection happening that would free unused memory and if yes, when can I bee sure that a free page has been purged.
