Subject RE: Am I doing something fundamentally wrong?
Date Thu, 24 May 2012 10:58:27 GMT
Looking at Show documentation and running a quick test I don't think this helps as Show has
to be referenced by a doc._id or view key. If these aren't provided it returns null. This
makes sense as its for generation of a html, XML page/doc etc. 

So I'd have to  get a list of all doc ID's I want and then call the show function for each
and to get a filtered list I need a view.

Thanks for the response and apologies I didn't get a notification (e-mail) of my original
post (or the 2nd one) or your response. When I look at my original post in Google Reader is
has "An error occurred while fetching this message, sorry !", so there must be something in
the e-mail that the mailing list system does not like.

In response to your original response " I'm a bit puzzled by the fact that your map functions
use the document ID". I do this because I load the data into Luciddb and this allows me to
join between tables. This is not my end game this is just a compromise due to the time it
takes to generate a view and my need to play/discover with the data. 

I will look at show to see if It helps, however it does not really answer my original questions
and it does not remove the more general issue that view build takes a very long time, it only
uses a single CPU and uses a bucket load of space even with compression on (no idea why when
it has a lot less data than the original)

Hi Mike,

> Didn't seem to get there first time so having another go

As I wrote in my earlier post, the use of 'map' functions in both of your examples is overkill.
Use 'show' functions instead.They won't require an index to be built.
