Introducing inefficiencies into RavenDB, on purpose

The administrators on the server noted the high I/O and that a single thread was constantly busy and decided that this is likely a hung thread.

A while ago, I showed you a way to scale Neo4j writes using RabbitMQ. Which was kinda cool, but some of you asked me for a different solution that didn’t involve adding yet another software component to the stack. Turns out we can do this in just Neo4j using a little help from the Guava library.
