Question : Imagine you’re using a 5-server replica set and you have critical inserts which you do not want the potential for a rollback to happen. You also have to consider that secondaries may be taken down from to time for maintenance, leaving you with a potential 4-server replica set. Which write concern is best suited for these critical inserts?

  1. w=0
  2. w=1
  3. w=majority (Ans)
  4. w=2
  5. w=3

Question: Write Concern is set at the DB level and every operation on this DB must use the same Write Concern:

  • True
  • False (Ans)

Question: For getLastError / WriteConcern with w=3, if you have an arbiter, it counts as one of the 3.

  • True
  • False (Ans)

Question: Does getLastError() need to be called if using default Write Concerns?

  • Yes
  • No (Ans)

Question: What are some issues with using wtimeout? Check all that apply.

  1. A write can be made but getLastError() could reprot a failure (Ans)
  2. Each query coud potentially take the full duration of the wtimeout (Ans)
  3. Pile-ups of connections (Ans)
  4. Requests could hand indefinitely
  5. Doesn’t work with replica sets
