Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-904) No method to detect view server VM version
Date Thu, 12 May 2011 14:47:47 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-904:


That's not a bad idea but its orthogonal from this issue. This issue was due to me debugging
something completely random and then figuring out that the person had a weird couchjs installed.
So this was just a quick thought on how to make that obvious for future debugging.

Your idea for having couchdb send its version number to the os processes it opens is a good
idea though, you should open another ticket with your latest comment so we have somewhere
to track that idea.

> There's currently no way to tell what version of the view server is being used. Ie, the
JS VM (Or Python, or Ruby, etc) that is being used. Just occurred to me it could be useful
for debugging things that work one place and not another.
> A proposed simple fix would be to have the view server protocol dictate that when a server
boots up it spits out a line like:
> {"version": OPAQUE_STRING} that gets stored in a view_server_versions section in the
config or some such.
