Testing the MongoDB Global Write Lock Improvements 38

rick446 writes "I took some time to benchmark the global write lock improvements in MongoDB 2.0. From the article: 'MongoDB, as some of you may know, has a process-wide write lock... Per-database and per-collection locking is on the roadmap ..., but it's not here yet. What was announced in MongoDB version 2.0 was locking-with-yield. I was curious about the performance impact of the write lock and the improvement of lock-with-yield, so I decided to do a little benchmark, MongoDB 1.8 versus MongoDB 2.0.'"

    It's like this articles starts in the middle of a sentence and I can't tell what the hell is going on.

    OK, for starters, what the fuck is MongoDB? Just a single sentence or some mention would be helpful. Secondly, why is this front page material? It's just some crappy blog about some minor change to some product nobody uses, woopdeedoo.

    Congratulations. You matter enough to bother reinventing this wheel again. If you continue to matter for a meaningful amount of time you'll end up locking individual documents, or whatever you call them. Oracle called that 'row' locking. 15 years ago.

    Yeah, we're nerds here. We like boring shit, fuck off.
