This book explains how to set up, monitor, and manage VoltDB databases and the clusters that host them.
It is possible to perform the functions described in this book using the VoltDB Community Edition database software and other open source software. However, many of these functions are automated and simplified by using the Enterprise Manager, which is a feature of the VoltDB Enterprise Edition. Therefore, this book describes the Enterprise Manager as the primary interface. Notes are provided at the end of each chapter for those performing the functions without the assistance of the management tool.
This book assumes the reader is already familiar with VoltDB and the basic operation of a VoltDB database. If you are not familiar with VoltDB, we recommend reading Getting Started With VoltDB before reading this book.
This book is divided into eight chapters and three appendices:
