Scaling MongoDB for Real-Time Analytics, A Shortcut Around the Mistakes I've Made

A session at MongoUK 2011

  • Theo Hultberg

Monday 19th September, 2011

10:15am to 11:00am (GMT)

You've probably read all the blog posts about how MongoDB is awesome for real time analytics - but is it? And how do you really do it? I've learnt how to do it the hard way, by making most of the mistakes and trying a few things that turned out to be not so great. You shouldn't have to make those mistakes too. In this talk I'll tell the story of how I built a system that processes tens of millions of ads per day and all the things I did wrong before I got it to work. The things you can do with MongoDB once you scale up beyond a few hundred operations per second, signs of trouble to look out or and how the nice guys at 10gen can be really helpful when you're stuck.
