Scan Consistency Using the Python SDK with Couchbase Server

    You can balance performance against consistency in N1QL queries via the Couchbase Python client and the AtPlus option.

    Setting a Scan Consistency, lets you choose between NOT_BOUNDED (the default), for sharpest performance; REQUEST_PLUS, for strongest consistency; and AT_PLUS, for a good balance between increased performance and completeness of results.

    The following example — for which mutation tokens must be enabled during connection — shows AT_PLUS in action, using consistentWith(MutationState):

    #!/usr/bin/env python
    import time
    from couchbase.bucket import Bucket
    from couchbase.n1ql import N1QLQuery, MutationState
    TIMESTAMP = str(time.time())
    cb = Bucket('couchbase://localhost/default?fetch_mutation_tokens=true')
    rv = cb.upsert('ndoc', {'timestamp': TIMESTAMP})
    ms = MutationState()
    query = N1QLQuery('SELECT * from default WHERE timestamp=$1', TIMESTAMP)
    print query.encoded
    for row in cb.n1ql_query(query):
        print row
