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!
