Jerry talks about lessons learned taking the second-highest QPS Couchbase Server at LinkedIn from meltdown to awesome. The story of Couchbase at LinkedIn is an insightful and suspense-filled story of making slow progress in tuning a system for performance. Jerry's team runs one of the fastest (by QPS or latency standards) Couchbase clusters within LinkedIn by making clever use of SSD's and by tuning the parameters correctly. Achieving this kind of standard in tuning is done primarily by avoiding the use of buckets, and tuning the right number of reader-vs-writer threads. In this session, learn best practices for tuning at scale.
