Config DB

The Config DB is a MySQL database (DB) that lives on the Config node. This database stores metadata used by the Scuba application: for example, it stores information about users, user-created objects, datasets, dashboard queries, and application settings. The Config DB only stores metadata, so it stays very small, even when the cluster stores a lot of data.
