Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1296) _changes style feed for database create/delete
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2011 11:16:52 GMT


Bob Dionne commented on COUCHDB-1296:

I can see this is a useful feature. I would think /db_updates  which would include create/delete
dbs as well as updates, .ie. all changes, would be quite a hefty feed depending on use cases.

The idea of a database database is also interesting, we do that in BigCouch, storing a doc
for each db created in a shard_db database. This is to support the partition map. Anyway as
Sam notes a database db gives you the create/delete changes for free

Currently if you want to watch the _changes feed or start replication jobs for certain types
of databases (say they're name spaced) you have to get /_all_dbs and then poll it to check
for changes, requiring a full array scan.
> This feed would allow me to hit /_all_dbs once and then get updates without hitting /_all_dbs
every second and scanning a potentially large array.
