Streaming Twitter into MongoDB

19 Mar, 2010 - 1 minutes
One thing that you can do with mongodb is have 1 streaming master and 1 read/write master server A: server B: You can then pipe the stream into server A, and it will only process the live stream. Server B will replicate all changes. You can also write to it, query on it, etc… This way you can do operations that block writing on server B, but server A will never backlog.
