Couchbase Server Admin training is designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible with your Couchbase Server, followed by everything you need to know to administer, monitor and work with your Couchbase Server deployment to get the best uptime and performance. Training is provided over two days, with hands-on exercises throughout to help you use and understand the different operations and management processes required to administer your deployment.
Day one you will cover the basics of getting your Couchbase Server installation up and running, deploying a cluster with multiple instances, the management tools and interfaces available and supported 'smart' client solutions. The exercises then move on to understanding the partitioning of information through buckets and how to monitor your cluster through the supplied web interface.
Topics covered include:
• Couchbase Server Overview
• Up and Running
• Couchbase data
• Drivers and clients
• Backup, restore and upgrades
Day two concentrates on the administration of performance and availability, starting by looking at vBuckets and then moving on to handling rebalancing and failure scenarios. This section of the course also covers more detailed examination of the monitoring and logging data and the management REST API. Finally, the course covers change monitoring using TAP.
Topics covered include:
• Advanced monitoring
• Using the Couchbase CLI
• Management API
• Advanced Moxi
• Logging and Troubleshooting
Format and Daily Schedule
The training course is provided in classroom style, combining a presentation showing you the fundamentals, and then exercises that you can follow using your laptop. These exercises are optional, but we advise following the exercises as this will give you the best opportunity to learn and ask questions about the product.
Classes start at 9am and finish around 5pm each day. There are frequent breaks during the day, and a break for lunch when a suitable stopping point in the presentation is reached. Unless otherwise noted, lunch is not pre-arranged.
What You Need
You should bring your laptop (any platform) so that you can take part in the various exercises. Training is supported through a number of pre-arranged Amazon EC2 clusters running Couchbase Server. You do not need Couchbase Server installed on your machine, but you do need an SSH client (such as OpenSSH or PuTTY).
