Number of buckets must be a power of two?
I am getting this error:
Exception in thread "main" com.couchbase.client.vbucket.config.ConfigParsingException: Number of buckets must be a power of two, > 0 and <= 65536
Either I am doing something wrong or this is a very restrictive requirement. I can see that if I have 4 buckets it is not too bad to create 2 dummy buckets (sssuming that there are 2 useful buckets. I realize 1 is also a power of 2). But to make a jump from 4 to 8 buckets requiring 100 MB be dedicated to a dummy bucket is not very efficient. And as you can tell it gets worse as the number of buckets increases passed 8. Is this a real restriction and why is this so? Has anyone used a system where the number of buckets was > 8 or 16. What issues did you run into? It seems that Couchbase is not a good system for those that require > 9 or 16 buckets.
