Trying to get my database optimized… I’m currently running MongoDB OpLog which is plenty fast, but, I have to run 3 instances.
EATS my RAM. I’m upwards of 20 gigs.
So I want to try Redis. So I’m thinking 1 MongoDB, 1 Redis? Should this use less RAM?
God damn I wish there was some STRAIGHT FORWARD directions on the ideal scalable database for Meteor. What a nightmare.
No. Yes? Sort of. It turned out my OpLog was not configured right. I had the server running 3 replica set, that’s fine. But you need to set an addtional environment variable that tells the OpLog URL to look at /local, which is where the oplogging takes place!
My app is now a billion times faster.
