So you've set up a MongoDB cluster -- you're not done yet! MongoDB requires care and feeding to keep it running in good health. This session will cover techniques for managing a growing and maturing MongoDB ecosystem. We will talk about managing multiple clusters with chef and automating snapshots and restores. We will also cover best practices for continuous compaction, warming up secondaries, and other scaling and tuning tips. Finally we will talk about how to track down bad queries and deal with traumatic MongoDB events with minimal downtime. This session is appropriate for anyone who has already gone through the provisioning process and wants to know how to make his or her clusters run better.
