Subject [jira] [Resolved] (COUCHDB-736) stale-ok view queries can return inconsistent partial results
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2011 22:10:16 GMT

Randall Leeds resolved COUCHDB-736.
-----------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

It sounds like you're trying to confer some notion of "stability" on the database-at-the-time-of-first-indexing-request,
and asking that *all* those documents be indexed before any result can be returned. This idea
seems bogus to me, because as future updates arrive the stale index can always again become
a partial index. If you need to be sure the index reflects the state of the db you should
not be using stale=ok :)

> since r796805 requests to views with the stale=ok option have returned partially computed
index results. This changed the semantics of views. This ticket is about maintaining the old
semantics.
> This should be changed so stale=ok only returns what would be returned by a normal view
request. stale=partial would be an OK name for an option to provide the current behavior.

> The best way to fix this would be to store the NewGroup sent on the partial_update cast
in #group_state.partial_group instead of #group_state.group
> This will also eliminate the (rare) changes of serving inconsistent results with a regular
view query.
