Sorry if this is a noob question, but…
I have a setup where I have a meteor app running on one Digital Ocean box, and on another Digital Ocean box I have another Meteor app that has been given the same MONGO_URL as the first app.
There is no UI (to speak of) in this second Meteor app and it does nothing except observe a collection and run a job anytime a document is added to, deleted from, or modified in the collection.
It appears, however, that it always takes several seconds for this observer to start running. I’m wondering why I can’t get it to run instantly.
The MongoDB I am using is one that I installed myself on the first DO box – does this homegrown approach prevent oplog tailing, or something like that?
