Monitoring MongoDB with New Relic Infrastructure

MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. Instead of storing your data in tables and rows as you would with a relational database, in MongoDB, you store data in JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. This new data model can simplify your coding and improve performance by grouping relevant data together internally. But what if something goes wrong? It’s vital you have the right monitoring in place.


How to start monitoring your MongoDB

What you can monitor with our MongoDB integration

Replication tag and state

See delays in copying data from the primary node to a secondary node—and whether any nodes have died and if a new primary node was elected. 

Locking state

See which data locks are set and the length of time they have been in place. 

Number of connections

View how many connections the database has open in order to serve requests as quickly as possible. 

You need to know what’s happening in your MongoDB

Our MongoDB integration gives you detailed performance information for your cluster, so you can gauge its functional state, gain insights on anomalies, and fix unusual behaviors before they escalate into more serious failures. You can visualize everything in dashboards and pinpoint performance bottlenecks in key metrics for your mongos, mongods, and config servers, as well as on databases and collections.

See your MongoDB metrics in pre-built dashboards

Visualize all your data, easily filter to a specific host, and correlate with other performance metrics.

Default NGINX dashboards

Track all MongoDB configuration changes

Understand configuration differences across your stack and quantify how they're impacting performance.

Track all NGINX configuration changes

Know immediately when your performance is degrading

Set up and receive alerts for any of the metrics captured—for example, get notified when your MongoDB nodes are not properly replicated.
