Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-1089) Let anonymous users access _active_tasks for view generation estimates
Date Sun, 13 Mar 2011 11:12:59 GMT


Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-1089:

Dale, I understand that. What I'm saying is that it seems useless, since with replicator database
you can know if the replication is running or not by simply reading the "_replication_state"
field of the replication document. Plus, for many other use cases, you can define map/reduce
views for other not so trivial things.

I would like to allow anyone to see view generation statuses, preferably on a per database
level. This solves the problem of the first user to generate a view that then receives no
time estimate as to when their process will be completed. I can't think of an application
use case for making replication data public.

after a code dive that it appears achievable, though the innards of the view status code were
not familiar to him.
