Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-807) authentication cache (user docs cache)
Date Thu, 24 Jun 2010 20:13:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-807?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12882310#action_12882310

Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-807:
---------------------------------------

Yes, I checked it and now it fails.

I have to blame commit r957407, which instead of sending an unauthorized json error object,
like users_db.js test is expecting, it sends an html page.
That said, the failed assertions having nothing to do with this ticket.

cheers

> Currently, in order to authenticate an incoming request, each authentication handler
will read a user doc from the _users DB.
> By default, 3 authentication handlers are defined (default.ini), which means we can have
3 _users DB lookups (besides 3 DB open and close operations).
> Taking into account that this is done for each incoming HTTP request, for very busy servers
this current behaviour might be overkill.
> The following patch adds a new gen_server which implements an authentication cache and
keeps the _users DB open all the time, so that cache misses and refreshes are as quick as
possible.
