CouchDB Indexing Benchmark

In the last post, we discussed how CouchDB’s external query server works by examining the raw protocol. In this post, we’re going to take a look at the performance of different query servers. The code used in this benchmarking is here. I listed below the method of the benchmark in detail. If you want you can jump to conclusion. The Setup The benchmarks are done on my laptop (Intel 6th-gen i7 processor, 8G RAM, SSD) with CouchDB 1.

CouchDB Query Protocol

Recently at $DAYJOB I had the opportunity to look deeper into how CouchDB indexing works and compared the performance of different indexers. Hopefully this series of articles will shed some light on how to get the most out of CouchDB’s view indexing. In this article we’ll be going over the concept of CouchDB views and find out just how CouchDB indexes documents with the help of external query servers.
