On average... [Dec. 20th, 2001|12:45 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


What is the average number of key-value pairs returned for a request (from any mode)? What is a realistic figure for a really big response (e.g. somebody with lots and lots of friends doing a getfriends request)?

You could figure that out, if you have a closer look at the modes page in the Dev Area. Requests that have keys with a counter in it may become quite big.
As an example have a look at the syncitems mode. If you do that request without specifying a lastsync it'll return key/value pairs for all journal entries ever posted(every item has 3 key/value pairs). That can become really big I suppose.

There is no average on a web site that has such diversity. I was serious when I said make your code flexible. You really have to have dynamic arrays. If you don't, you WILL have trouble. :) Shrug, up to you, but trust me. :) It also depends on the request, as someone else said.

Re: unrelated

Absolutely, logjam is a Gtk+ client, very good one at that. evan maintains it.
