MongoDB Europe 2016 - Building WiredTiger

PublishedNovember 15, 2016

Hidden inside MongoDB is the WiredTiger data engine, an Open Source, pluggable storage engine that became the database's default in 3.2. Written in C, WiredTiger uses a variety of techniques to provide unmatched performance, low latency and scalability. This talk will explore data structures and techniques C/C++ programmers can use to support heavily threaded applications on modern hardware, using examples from the WiredTiger code base. Data structures and techniques to be covered include hazard pointers, skiplists, ticket locks, atomic instructions and memory barriers.
