Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-246) allow customization of external process timeout
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2009 08:54:59 GMT


Antony Blakey commented on COUCHDB-246:

I mean a keep-alive back to couch, not to the HTTP server, although the ability to propagate
the keep-alive as an HTTP continue might be interesting, though I'm not sure of the HTTP continue

The keep-alive was trivial - 2/3 lines to handle the message, because IIRC the timeout is
in the receive loop of the external driver. I think its not more work than the configurable

As far as UUIDs are concerned, do you mean session multiplexing over the _external channel?

> If an external process takes too long to respond, it is killed. The timeout is quite
short (a few seconds) and is not configurable from .ini files today.
> couchdb-lucene could use this ability as the first attempt to sort on a field in a large
index is slow while it builds a cache. With the timeout, it's killed and the partial work
is lost.
