Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Partitioning proposal" by BenBrowning
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2009 23:52:48 GMT
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 BenBrowning:

  === Avoid JSON Overhead ===
  Partition nodes should communicate via native Erlang terms instead of doing Erlang ->
JSON -> Erlang conversion. This implies an Erlang API for interacting with Couch which
doesn't officially exist yet.
+ === Take Advantage of Erlang's Distributed Features ===
+ Erlang has some great tools for inter-node communication and process management; we should
strive to utilize these over rolling our own node communication.
  === Tree Partition Topology ===
  Support a tree partition topology that can be as shallow or deep as the user needs. It should
be possible to have a flat tree with only one root and many leaf nodes, a binary tree structure,
or any variant in-between.
