Subject Performance issue
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2009 09:45:05 GMT


I am encountering a big performance problem with CouchDB. I've tried it both
on Windows and on an Ubuntu server 9.10 virtual machine. In both scenarios,
I get response times around 500ms (and sometimes more). I've tried simple
operations like adding a very minimal document (about 5 fields, a total
payload of max 0.5 KB / doc). I've also tried the operation while running it
in a loop. After 220 seconds i've only PUT 448 documents. 


After running the whole thing through a profiler (to be sure that it's not
my code causing the issues), it seems the bottleneck is in the response time
from the couchdb server.


Is there any magic optimization that I must do or something I'm missing? My
machine is fast enough that this shouldn't be a real issue (Core 2 Duo,
2GHz, 4GB ram, running on Windows 7, and VM running on VirtualBox, with 512
