Configuring Riak TS

Riak TS mostly relies on Riak KV’s default configuration settings. However, there are a few TS-specific configurations you should know about:

  • Riak TS exposes a few configuration settings in riak.conf. Read more about those settings here.
  • If you are using Riak TS Enterprise Edition, you can learn more about configuring multi-datacenter replication (MDC) here.
  • You have the option of deleting data via global object expiration. For more information on how to configure global expiry, go here.
  • The default n_val (the number of distinct copies of each record kept in your cluster for safety and availability) is 3. You can only change this default per-table when you create a table using WITH. Read more about that here.
