Mongodb & the edelight cookbook?


#1

Folks,

I’m curious to know if anyone else is trying to build a mongo cluster using the edelight cookbook? I’ve finally managed to get to the point where I’ve got the smallest possible microcluster up and running, with all major components represented. At this stage, I’m hoping it will be relatively easy to get more replicaset members added, more shards added, more config servers added, and more app servers running the mongos “router” process.

But I am interested in talking to others who are doing Mongo with chef, especially those trying the edelight cookbook, to see if they’ve got some good ideas that I can … borrow.

I’ve already contributed one set of changes back to the edelight folks, but I have yet to hear anything from them as to whether or not they have accepted them and whether they are going to incorporate anything that I’ve provided. Before I contribute anything else back, I’m thinking that I need to get set up on github and upload everything there, and then folks can pull from that as they like.

Any and all advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Brad,

I thought you were in conversations with Markus but you hadn’t
contributed actual code back. Is that not so?

In any case, feel free to fork on github and send a pull request with
your changes!

I had contributed code to him before the latest release, but I haven’t heard anything from him regarding what I sent. I have since re-factored what we were doing based on the latest release I know of.

At the moment, I’m in the process of integrating the mongodb cluster with our other code, and that will tell me what additional changes I may need to make before I can publish what we’ve done.

Will do. Thanks!
