Comments about O'Reilly Media Scaling CouchDB:

This book present good advices although most of them are not specific to CouchDB but could apply to any HTTP resource.
The chapter on distributed load testing with Tsung worth the read; on the other hand, I was disapointed by the clustering chapter.

This is a great, tactical guide to understanding how to "work with the grain" of CouchDB and the way it wants to help you scale. Bradley has a ton of great tips in this short read, worth picking up!
