showdependencygraph.cgi lets you graph as many nodes as you want, which is
bringing mothra performance to its knees now that Dave has installed a local
webdot.  We should be able to limit the number of nodes it displays.

Here's a likely solution: have a configurable limit and generate as much of the
graph as possible.

The work in progress is running on landfill with a limit of 10 links:

Is there a specific reason we don't want to use the shadow DB?

To keep the wording consistent on the output page, this should probably
be >= instead of >

>Index: template/en/default/bug/dependency-graph.html.tmpl

>+[% IF max_links AND link_count > max_links %]

>= instead of >

We have PRE_CHOMP on, so you need [%+ in front of max_links or you wind up with
no space between "first" and the number.

Otherwise this looks pretty good.

and I forgot to say also, on the output template, it should probably say "links"
instead of "nodes", and it might not hurt to clarify that links refers to "the
arrows between bugs".

This patch seems to have caused an infinite loop that filled my Apache
error_log with 2GB of data:

[Tue Feb 18 16:27:42 2003] [error] [client] [Tue Feb 18 16:27:42
2003] showdependencygraph2.cgi: Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.)
or string at /var/www/html/bztip/showdependencygraph2.cgi line 62.

I need to look at it and figure out what the problem is, or maybe it's to do
with bug 194125.  Anyway, in the meantime don't use this patch.

We should probably fix this before 2.18 ships...  any chance of resurrecting
this patch, Myk?

No, although they are related.  Bug 102622 is about limiting the depth,
presumably for usability, while this bug is about limiting the total number of
nodes regardless of depth, so that we don't overwhelm the graph generator.

Hmm, actually now that I take a closer look at bug 102622 this might be a dupe,
although the solution proposed in this bug is a simpler one.

They are both really RFEs, despite the severity and that bug 102622 blocks bug
164085.  They describe different features, even if they have similar motives. 
As such, I suppose they should be kept separate.
