In May 2014, MeetMe engineers will be presenting a talk, Lessons Learned: How Not To Do Postgres Connection Pooling, for the New York City PostgreSQL User Group. In this talk, we’ll discuss real-world connection management issues encountered while running Postgres as the primary database for a top-ten social network. This includes drilling into mistakes commonly made in regard to Postgres connection management, the disasters that follow, and how to do things properly. An overview of topics involved are as follows:
- Postgres connection management
- PGBouncer usage and configuration
The talk, which will be held at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 and hosted at the Yodle offices, will be presented by long-time MeetMe engineers and Postgres contributors Jonah H. Harris and Michael Glaesemann, respectively the VP of Architecture and Sr. Data Architect. If you’d like to attend, please join the MeetUp!
