Connection pooling with standalone Moxi
Hi, I'm using the Python 'smart client' from a web application and notice when load testing that the connection setup and close times dominate the total time taken to access Couchbase. It was recommended for 1.8 that as usage grows it can be advantageous to move to client-side Moxi; http://www.couchbase.com/docs/moxi-manual-1.8/moxi-performance.html. However, this page also says the 'smart client' can be even better, and that it removes the need for Moxi? I'm unsure how the smart client removes the benefit that client-side Moxi gives you from maintaining connections to the Couchbase cluster?
In addition I am wondering if I can use CAS operations through a client-side Moxi?
