Why is Couchbase such a Hog?
I've been evaluating Couchbase 2.0 Enterprise in a VM environment with 5 nodes @ 2.0ghz 8 Core and 32GB of Ram. Even when the entire cluster is idle, doing nothing at all it looks like all of the servers are consuming quite a lot of CPU and RAM.
Top looks like memcached and beam.smp are the two primary hogs. Anyone else have these observations as well? Is there anything that can be done to make CB more efficient? Maybe I just don't know what's happening behind the scenes, it just seems a bit excessive compared to my Datastax Cluster...also doing nothing.
