Michael Fiedler - Operating MongoDB

MongoDB makes ops a breeze... if you do it the right way.

In this session, Mike will walk through best practices for MongoDB production configurations. He'll work through several model operational scenarios, covering maintenance tasks, backups, recovery processes, and performance monitoring.

We'll also cover design patterns that have been seen in the wild, and discuss hardware deployment considerations.

About the speaker:

Michael A. Fiedler has been keeping systems running for over 16 years at a variety of companies ranging from finance, to web tech, to education and advertising.

In that time, he has been exposed to a wide variety of scenarios and considers learning how to deal with problems more fun than avoiding them. He is a licensed skydiver and certified roller derby referee.

    Mike was great, got a bit carried away with chef at the start but definitely knows his stuff and did answer all the questions we had.

    I thought this was a talk about operating MongoDB, but it was about deployment scripts. I think if the speaker is going to change the topic, the Meetup description should be changed so that people can opt out or opt in.

    Great talk. Started with a recap of devops via chef and dove into some specifics about election of a new master mongod node in case of failure. Hands on demonstration of all aspects talked about.
    Would have appreciated maybe a little more about administering the cluster per-se. Overall I walked away with more confidence that I could handle an problem in a mongo cluster.

    I felt far too much time was spent demoing chef automation and spiceweasel and very little time discussing the actual topic.
