Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-390) proposed additions to _changes feed
Date Tue, 13 Jul 2010 08:49:51 GMT


Martin Higham commented on COUCHDB-390:

When implementing a system where each end user has one or more databases this is an essential

The alternative is to have the listener process generating large numbers of connections and
having a system that adds more listeners whenever a new user account is created. I know this
is the approach that node.couch.js takes but its not really scalable to large deployments

> The _changes comet feed as a replacement for the update notifications is a great step
forward, but I'm currently missing these features:
> 1. The feeds are now per database, rather than per server, which is nice in some use
cases, but in others it's preferable to have a server wide feed (In the case of many thousands
of databases on a server, and a single process reacting to updates, by putting messages on
a message queue for instance). Ideally I'd like to have both server wide and per database
_changes feeds available.
> 2. I'd like to have a configurable _changes feed that let's me declare what data will
be output in the update rows in the feed, in a similar way to writing views.
> 3. I'd like to (optionally) have information on whether a particular update was a document
creation, update or deletion, so clients would be able to react to those differently without
needing to query into the database to find out what happened.
