MongoDB Case Study

Learn from your peers. Developers and operators from the MongoDB community will share experiences building and managing modern applications.

Diagnostics and Debugging

Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

You've hit some bottleneck in MongoDB. Now what do you do? How do you figure out what part of your system is causing the problem? MongoDB offers a number of tools for diagnosing performance issues and monitoring areas of your application and infrastructure that may need additional resources or attention. These include mongostat, mongotop, various parts of MMS and mtools. In this talk we will walk through a number of performance scenarios and use these tools to diagnose problems and common (and not so common) pitfalls in your MongoDB cluster.

11:00am - 11:50am

MongoDB and Hadoop: Driving Business Insights

MongoDB and Hadoop can work together to solve big data problems facing today's enterprises. We will take an in-depth look at how the two technologies complement and enrich each other with complex analyses and greater intelligence. We will take a deep dive into the MongoDB Connector for Hadoop and how it can be applied to enable new business insights with MapReduce, Pig, and Hive, and demo a Spark application to drive product recommendations.

Socialite, the Open Source Status Feed

Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

Building a complete social networking platform presents many challenges at scale. Socialite is a reference architecture and open source Java implementation of a scalable social feed service built on DropWizard and MongoDB. We'll provide an architectural overview of the platform, explaining how you can store an infinite timeline of data while optimizing indexing and sharding configuration for access to the most recent window of data. We'll also dive into the details of storing a social user graph in MongoDB.

Mythbusting: Understanding How We Measure the Performance of MongoDB

Alvin Richards, Director of Performance, MongoDB

Benchmarking, benchmarking, benchmarking. We all do it, mostly it tells us what we want to hear but often hides a mountain of misinformation. In this talk we will walk through the pitfalls that you might find yourself in by looking at some examples where things go wrong. We will then walk through how MongoDB performance is measured, the processes and methodology and ways to present and look at the information.

3:00pm - 3:50pm

Hidden Gems in the 2.6 Release

Dan Pasette, VP of Engineering, MongoDB

Everyone using MongoDB is familiar with the big features of the 2.6 release (and if you’re not, here’s a link) — text search, $out, user-defined roles, X509 authentication, etc. But what about the little guys? Our VP of Engineering, Daniel Pasette, will take you on a tour of five small but mighty features from the 2.6 release that make your MongoDB experience more productive.

High Performance MongoDB

MongoDB is a high performance, scalable, general purpose database used by organizations of all sizes to power online applications. This talk will outline the considerations for achieving performance at scale with MongoDB; focusing on a few key areas, such as hardware, application patterns, schema design, indexing, disk I/O and Amazon EC2.

4:00pm - 4:50pm

Flexible, Searchable, Low-Latency Product Catalog

Antoine Girbal, Solution Architect, MongoDB

During this session we will cover the best practices for implementing a product catalog with MongoDB. We will cover how to model an item properly when it can have thousands of variations and thousands of properties of interest. You'll learn how to index properly and allow for faceted search with milliseconds response latency and how to implement per-store, per-sku pricing while still keeping a sane number of documents. We will also cover operational considerations, like how to bring the data closer to users to cut down the network latency.

Run MongoDB with Confidence: Backing up and Monitoring with MMS

MongoDB Management Service (MMS) is the application for managing MongoDB, created by the engineers who develop MongoDB. MMS provides visibility into the performance of your cluster, alerting when key metrics are out of range and backup and recovery of your mission critical data. This session will provide you with an overview of MMS, including installation and setup and a walk through of metrics and alerts. Then we'll compare and contrast the various different backup strategies, with a deep dive on using MMS to back up your MongoDB data.
