How to benchmark MongoDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There are generally three components to any benchmark project:

  1. Create the benchmark application
  2. Execute it
  3. Publish your results

I assume many people think they want to run more benchmarks but give up since step 2 is extremely consuming as you expand the number of different configurations/scenarios.

I'm hoping that this blog post will encourage more people to dive-in and participate, as I'll be sharing the bash script I used to test the various compression options coming in the …

Storage efficiency
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Storage efficiency is a big deal. I have learned a lot about read, write and space amplification over the past few years. Tiered storage has been a part of my work life via flashcache, but tiered storage for an LSM doesn't require flashcache. This is going to get interesting. We have more choices for SSD at a variety of price points based on write endurance and performance.  We have write-optimized database engines (RocksDB, …

I don't get marketing

MongoDB 3.0 is almost here. It includes the WiredTiger storage engine which is very impressive. Alas, now we are told that the original storage engine has performance problems. I am shocked. Who knew? Not anyone reading their documentation. I don't understand why companies play this game. Be honest with your users as this goes a long way to building a solid and educated community. I hold MySQL to the same standard. Lets us not forget that awesome manual section on atomic operations. …

MongoDB Storage Engine Shootout : Round 1 : Indexed Insertion
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The next release of MongoDB includes the ability to select a storage engine, the goal being that different storage engines will have different capabilities/advantages, and user's can select the one most beneficial to their particular use-case. Storage engines are cool. MySQL has offered them for quite a while. One very big difference between the MySQL and MongoDB implementations is that in MySQL the user gets to select a particular storage engine for each table, whereas in MongoDB it's a choice made …

Mo’ Data, Mo’ Problems
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Welcome to blog #2 in a series about the benefits of the Fractal Tree. In this post, I’ll be explaining Big Data, why it poses such a problem and how Tokutek can help. Given the fact that I am a lifelong fan of both Hip-hop and Big Data, the title was a no-brainer and, given the artist, a bit of a pun.

 I am as tired as you of hearing the term “Big Data.” It’s so overused, that it ceases to have specific meaning anymore. You see, data hardly ever starts as “big” or a “problem.” Rather, it starts small and easily manageable, but gradually grows to some unimaginable size and becomes a beast in need of slaying, like …

Fractal Tree Greatness: The Nexus
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my recent travels, I’ve been speaking with database users at various meetups and trade shows worldwide. Very often, I got questions centering around the best use cases for our products, be it TokuDB, our MySQL storage engine, or, TokuMX, our distribution of MongoDB. Over 90% of the time, I responded Cloud, Big Data or both. You see, in the software industry we’re like kindergartners, we like things to fit into neat categories. If you know any software sales people, you’ll recognize this as a fitting analogy (at least in terms of energy and attention span), but I digress. This strategy helps allocate resources where they are most likely to make an impact, …

Diving deeper into MongoDB 2.8 collection level locking performance
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last month I wrote a blog about the closing of MongoDB ticket SERVER-1240, which brings Collection Level Locking (CLL) to the MMAPV1 storage engine in MongoDB 2.8. In MongoDB 2.6 there is a writer lock at the database level, so each database only allows one writer at a time. In concurrent write workloads, this means that all writers essentially form a single line and do their writes one at a time. In MongoDB 2.8 this lock has been moved to the collection level. Better yet is …
