Please join Percona Senior Technical Operations Architect Tim Vaillancourt on Wednesday December 14, at 10:00 am PST/ 1:00pm EST (UTC-8) as he presents MongoDB System Tuning Best Practices.
People give much love to optimizing document design, provisioning, and even selecting an engine in MongoDB. They give little attention to tuning Linux to handle databases efficiently. In this session we will talk about what schedulers you should use, what network settings, what memory and cache settings, what file systems, should you use NUMA and Huge Pages, and more.
This will be a data-packed webinar for the advanced user, but still accessible by the budding systems admin type that wants to learn more about system internals.
Tim joined Percona in 2016 as Sr. Technical Operations Architect for MongoDB, with a goal to make the operations of MongoDB as smooth as possible. With experience operating infrastructures in industries such as government, online marketing/publishing, SaaS and gaming – combined with experience tuning systems from the hard disk all the way up to the end-user – Tim has spent time in nearly every area of the modern IT stack with many lessons learned.
Tim lives in Amsterdam, NL and enjoys traveling, coding and music. Prior to Percona Tim was the Lead MySQL DBA of Electronic Arts’ DICE studios, helping some of the largest games in the world (“Battlefield” series, “Mirrors Edge” series, “Star Wars: Battlefront”) launch and operate smoothly while also leading the automation of MongoDB deployments for EA systems. Before the role of DBA at EA’s DICE studio, Tim served as a subject matter expert in NoSQL databases, queues and search on the Online Operations team at EA SPORTS. Prior to moving to the gaming industry, Tim served as a Database/Systems Admin operating a large MySQL-based SaaS infrastructure at AbeBooks/Amazon Inc.
