State of development of pools


I was wondering what the state of pools is in the Couchbase development? It still appears that /pools/default is the only one available, though I may have missed some recent developments.

I ask because I’d like to have a deployment of a large number of Couchbase servers, with large numbers of buckets overall (since there will be a large number of separate databases), but want to group the buckets so that they only appear on certain servers to avoid the known overheads and bucket limits.

I don’t get the impression that the server groups feature is exactly the same as this, though I may be wrong.


Hi @Eugaia, Pools are not commonly used today but we are looking at extending the bucket counts/density in future. How many buckets are you looking at for your data? Can you talk about the use case and what you’d like to achieve in a little more detail?
