Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1405) error generating document id with utc_random
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2012 10:40:59 GMT


André Bögge commented on COUCHDB-1405:

I just forgot to thank you for your fast reply.

You were right with your assumption. It really seems to be the virtual machine. Even if the
shown time in windows seems to be correctly set, there are some curious and odd things in
system event log with errors regarding the time synchronisation at this VM. This seems to
be a global problem using hyper-v and time sync. Many thanks!

> I use the utc_random algorithm for generating document ids. So it's possible for me to
calculate time and date out of the id in my client application. After running CouchDB for
about a month i got a difference between system time and calculated time of id of about half
an hour. I restarted the database and even then i got a difference about 1 minute.
