Speaker: Brian Blevins, Technical Services Engineer, MongoDB 
Level: 200 (Intermediate)
Track: Performance

Since the performance of your application drives engagement and revenue, it can make or break the success of your organization. You can use the Compass graphical client from MongoDB to visualize your database schema, collect information on optimization opportunities and make database changes to improve performance. In this talk, we will briefly introduce Compass and then delve into the features supporting database performance optimization. The talk will combine instruction on the use of Compass with recommendations for performance best practices. We will also review the detection and resolution of slow queries and excessive network utilization. After attending the talk, audience members will have a better understanding of the capabilities of Compass, including how those capabilities can be used to find and correct performance bottlenecks in MongoDB databases. This session is designed for those with limited MongoDB experience. Attendees should have a basic understanding of MongoDB’s schema design, the server/database/collection layout, and how their application accesses and uses the MongoDB database.

What You Will Learn:

Identify excessive network utilization, adjust queries appropriately and use Compass to confirm results.

Understand how the Compass graphical client can help you improve performance in your MongoDB deployment.

Use Compass real time statistics to identify slow queries and recognize when a query is a good candidate for adding an index.
