Basho posted “Data Durability Is Not An After-market Add-on; Announcing KillDashNine” and since I’m a fan of durable data in general, Riak and Dry Martini in particular I decided to do the Stockholm version of #killdashnine. The venue was Little Quarter (the inner bar at restaurant Marie Laveau), home to my favorite bar staff.
Me, Jesper, Sven and Fredrik made only four people in attendance so we certainly have some room for improvement. Also we didn’t actually kill any databases on location. Although me and Jesper did spend some time last week beating the crap out of ActiveMQ using kill -9 on the broker while producing and consuming persistent messages. Using our very non-scientific, nor exhaustive, approach it all looked well although some people experience problems with KahaDB.
I’m aiming to keep this going on the 9th of the month and hopefully I’ll muster the energy to prep some proper kill-demos for the next gathering.
