Description

With MongoDB 3.2 WiredTiger is now the default storage engine. This presentation will go through the configuration parameters when using MongoDB with WiredTiger and demonstrate performance benchmarks against different configuration values. Running WiredTiger with default settings is fine for most workloads but some deployments may require changes to the default settings and especially the WiredTiger core engine configuration variables. We will review all available configuration variables and go over benchmarks that will help us understand the impact of each variable change.
