Subject Re: High latency (40ms) and low request rate (10 rps) under windows
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2011 06:56:15 GMT

I am not sure what is your point with this thread because I notice 
frustration and mockery in your posts, but failing to understand why. 
Maybe because I am slow, who knows? You joined this and devs list just 
to prove that CouchDB is slow? If you don't like CouchDB, PostgreSQL is 
faster and it's all you need (speed for one session in serialized 
writing), why bother to write here?

And about batch mode, you know you exaggerated a bit. You can use bulk 
operation in the real life as well (I do that as it is required by the 
type of my projects). It's not so difficult to create a buffer and to 
send all the documents at once using this kind of operation (if you 
expect so many docs one-by-one from the same session). The result in 
this case becomes even better than in PostgreSQL case (the case you were 
speaking of) if that matters to you. Also, coming back to the batch 
mode, I suppose there more events fitting this profile than the one you 
were speaking about (blogging is more often required by the web industry 
than the rest of the cases). If you refer to messaging for example, 10 
documents (or those 173 you found with delayed_commits true, but I take 
the worst case) are enough for such cases. And now, summing up, blogging 
and messaging are the most popular requests in the web industry today. 
For all the rest of the projects which requires automation, you can use 
the bulk operation I mentioned before (if you want to serialize the 
writing part).

So, I repeat, maybe it's me, but I don't see the point of your 
complaint, especially that nobody forced you to join this community. If 
your boss (if you have any) is forcing you to use this product and you 
don't like it, find ways to improve the speed for what you need. Nobody 
forces you to come here and say "your product sucks because in one 
particular case it doesn't work as I want!" I also found many products 
being incompatible with the requirements of my projects, but I don't 
tell the users community this or that product is bad and useless. If I 
really need that product and I cannot make it run as I need, I just ask 
for help if it is possible to tune in that product for my needs. Maybe 
it's my way of behaving wrong.

Good luck!
