Good evening,

kind of difference this makes.

Wow! Indeed! It went from 13 seconds to 1second!!!
Maybe I should learn erlang ;)

Thank you very much for your help.

Two comments though:

1. It took me some time to understand that a noeol file had to be done if we wanted couchapp
to work with _sum and _count. Is it documented anywhere?

2. I'm a bit confused by the impact of views implementation on request time. Isn't couchdb
supposed to cache partial reduce results (like it does for map results)?
