Subject Copying view file between replicated servers
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 09:01:27 GMT
I currently have a setup with two servers running couch replicating a
large database between them. One of them is 'live' in the sense that is
receives all the reads and writes. The other is basically a backup copy.

I just created a new design document with a new view and I just queried
the new view on the backup server in order to trigger an index build.
It's going to take a few hours to build. I don't really want that load
on the live server since it will slow it down too much. I was wondering
if, when the index build finishes, I can copy the view file from the
backup server to the live server. Will that work or are the view files
in some sense server/database specific?

As an aside, I will compact the view before copying it across since it's
likely to be huge after the initial build.
