I haven't had a chance yet, but one science experiment that might help
with identifying bottlenecks would be Michael McDaniel's erlang view

My gut tells me that the bottleneck is index insertion, and not view
function execution. Erlang views should have almost no overhead, so we
can guess at the best case for parallel JS view servers. It maybe that
to get true parallelism we need to parallelize indexing and not just
