Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1960) Provide pagination for /_all_dbs
Date Thu, 12 Dec 2013 22:45:07 GMT


Russell Branca commented on COUCHDB-1960:

I didn't spend much time optimizing the _all_dbs pagination because as Newson mentioned in
the other thread, it's doing a file system scan and returning all the items. So if you have
tens of thousands of databases, let alone millions, you're going to be hosed either way. Although
admittedly, making an additional request per database doesn't help matters. When BigCouch
is merged, the list of databases will be represented in a database, and we will be able to
do the standard pagination queries on _all_dbs.

> The database-per-user design pattern has increased in popularity and consequently causes
long lists of databases when one hits {{/_all_dbs}}
> To keep this sane, we need some pagination.
> {{?skip=10&limit=10}} style seems to be the simplest to implement (and there should
be existing code from Cloudant for this one).
