Tools and Techniques


To operate MongoDB efficiently, you need to have insight into database performance. And with that in mind, we’ll dive into monitoring in this talk. MongoDB offers many metrics through various status overviews and commands, but which ones really matter to you? How do you trend and alert on them? What is the meaning behind the metrics? We’ll discuss the most important ones and describe them in ordinary plain MySQL DBA language. Finally we’ll have a look at the (open source) tools available for MongoDB monitoring and trending and compare them.
