Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1293) Support in memory databases that can replicate
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2011 21:26:45 GMT


Randall Leeds commented on COUCHDB-1293:

As a temporary work-around you could also mount a ram disk under your couch database directory
and use encoded slashes in your DB name to put a DB under that storage. It would work, but
would compaction would still be required for long-lived, heavily-updated DBs since nothing
would change about the way couch sees the file.

> The summary really says it all. It would be great if we could have databases that live
only in memory, but that could also be replicated to other URLs (potentially a database on
disk or another node in a cluster).
> I don't think views would be necessary for the sorts of things you'd be doing all in
memory (session data, temp data, etc.).
> I talked with Kocoloski about this around a month ago and it did not sound like an easy
feat because of the replication. I would still like to hear what people have to say about
