Description

There is a good amount of love giving to optimizing your document design, provisioning, and even selecting your engine in MongoDB. There is little attention given to tuning Linux to handle your database efficiently. In this session, we will talk about what schedulers should you 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 session for the advanced user, but still accessible by the budding systems admin type that wants to learn more about system internals.
