Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by ChrisAnderson:

The comment on the change is:
A: How can I spread load across multiple nodes? (recommended nginx)

  Where $source_database and $target_database can be the names of local database or full URIs
of remote databases. Both databases need to be created before they can be replicated from
or to.
+ == How can I spread load across multiple nodes? ==
+ Using an http proxy like nginx, you can load balance GETs across nodes, and direct all POSTs,
PUTs and DELETEs to a master node. CouchDB's triggered replication facility can keep multiple
read-only servers in sync with a single master server, so by replicating from master ->
slaves on a regular basis, you can keep your content up to date.
  == How Fast are CouchDB Views? ==
  It would be quite hard to give out any numbers that make much sense. From the architecture
point of view, a view on a table is much like a (multi-column) index on a table in an RDBMS
that just performs a quick look-up. So this theoretically should be pretty quick.
