Read the Freaking Documentation to Couchbase!

Just wanted to point out a pretty awesome product with pretty awesome documentation:

Couchbase.

We're using it for a pretty specific use case and for that, it's handling things extremely well.  However, we noticed that it was using a ton of swap space to the point I was thinking we were on Windows boxes.

Buuuut lo and behold we didn't read all the documentation on how our nodes should be set up and here it is for v2.2 that we're using.

Actually that screenshot is further down in the issues section, complete with impact and JIRA issues!

It's actually pretty awesome to be able to track something down this easily.  Obviously, other people have encountered this that has lead to issues but it's great to see the trail and the resulting recommendation.
