Erik Torlén, Product Manager, Apica AB
Presented at MongoDB Stockholm 2012 Erik Torlén of Apica AB presented The Making of a Humongous World Wide Monitor Network. How we built a new generation world wide performance monitor network with redundancy and scalability in mind, from beginning to release. In this talk we will go over: How we are using mongodb in different datacenters with replicas and how important it is for the app to work // How we used extensive loadtesting (and A/B loadtesting) in order to verify performance and functionality of our app & db. // Using MongoHQ as the operation team of our mongoDBs. How it works and why we choose it. // Our requirements when we started dev on this new monitor network based on our earlier experience with old network & sqlserver. // Importance of monitoring your installation and keeping track of app & performance // The need of testing the different failure situations and the complete setup (app + db).
