2013-09-04 - PostgreSQL + ZFS on FreeBSD, Andrew Wong
18:45, Suspenders Bar and Restaurant
Abstract

A quick introduction to the installation, configuration of Postgres on FreeBSD and ZFS with a demo of using CitiBike data collected every minute since May 28, 2013.

The talk will cover:

  • Postgres installation - "Where do I get this magical database?!"
  • Initialization - "How do I get this running?!"
  • Quick and hassle-free optimizations - "What can I do to make this faster?!"

After the talk there will be time for questions pertaining to the content covered and some anecdotes about running similar systems in production.
