Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-956) Return all _seq values as strings not integers
Date Thu, 18 Nov 2010 19:44:13 GMT


Randall Leeds commented on COUCHDB-956:

I think it's actually important that the high watermark is based on position in the input
sequence or the worst that happens is documents are missed.

Last I looked at it the best solution that came to mind was to actually assign a local ephemeral
sequence *within this replication session* to changes as they arrived for the purposes of
tracking the high watermark during parallel fetching.

> Some fields are returned as strings in db_info and other places to protect against numeric
> {"db_name":"db","doc_count":0,"doc_del_count":0,"update_seq":0,"purge_seq":0,"compact_running":false,"disk_size":79,"instance_start_time":"1290088043619158","disk_format_version":5,"committed_update_seq":0}
> here, instance_start_time is protected but, more critically, update_seq is not.
> If update_seq were to be wrapped due to precision issues, what breaks?
