as a long time user of the libcouchbase2-libev backend, I took a look at the latest SDK doc and found a recommendation for the use of libevent:
“Pluggable non-blocking event loops such as libevent and libuv- integrate with your own non-blocking application, or use lcb_wait in blocking code”
You should install the libcouchbase2-libevent plugin in case your application will use more than 1024 file descriptors. The default select() based event loop only supports 1024 file descriptors.”
libev is only mentioned way down. Is libev deprecated?
Is there any advantage of the one over the other?
