Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-736) stale-ok view queries can return inconsistent partial results
Date Wed, 14 Apr 2010 17:40:49 GMT


Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-736:

We'll need to make sure to save this partial_group to disk somehow.  We can't go back to the
old way of requiring a (potentially huge) first pass at indexing to complete successfully
before we save durable checkpoints.

index results. This changed the semantics of views. This ticket is about maintaining the old

request. stale=partial would be an OK name for an option to provide the current behavior.

in #group_state.partial_group instead of

view query.
