For M201 - Is there any restriction on using sharded replicaset that we created in M103?

For M201 - Is there any restriction on using sharded replicaset that we created in M103?

For use in Chapter 5 lectures or for all chapters?

For all chapters in M201. I am just getting started with Chapter 1 so don’t know the content for Chapter 5, but would want to keep in simple by reusing the sharded cluster (from M103 course) unless there are specific use case where we want to test against a ReplicaSet that is not sharded.

I would suggest using a standalone server not a replica set or sharded cluster. From memory, most of the labs in this course reference dbs that are on a standalone server. Performance varies between replica sets/sharded cluster and standalone dbs and that’s covered in Ch5.

As for restrictions, the only two things I can think of is the size of the memory specified in the vagrant file (2GB) and the WiredTiger cacheSizeGB which was set in the mongod config file. And you’ll need to setup Mtools on that VM too.

Thank you. I will use local standalone for this exercise.
