The latest addition to the VMware Solution Exchange—the Blue Medora VMware vRealize Operations Management Pack for MongoDB—was just released today. And it’s about to make monitoring MongoDB on VMware a whole lot easier.
For infrastructures that depend on MongoDB to run their business-critical applications, monitoring database performance—especially with insight into virtual layer it’s running on—is crucial to minimizing bottlenecks and slow-downs.
The Management Pack for MongoDB stands out from existing solutions by harnessing the power of several key vROps features, including:
The Management Pack’s out-of-the-box dashboards include four overview dashboards that provide a high-level view of the health, performance, and availability of your MongoDB environment:
In addition, there are four detail-level dashboards that enable drill-downs into the most critical MongoDB resources:
The Management Pack collects and displays more than 450 metrics regarding MongoDB resources. Some of the most useful key metrics provided by the MongoDB management include:
The Management Pack for MongoDB creates alerts from key metrics from MongoDB resources and displays them in vRealize Operations. These alerts contain detailed recommendations to help remedy the issue at hand. Examples of alerts include:
Harnessing the predictive analytics capabilities of the vROps Analysis Badges using capacity definitions, the management pack displays Connections Capacity Remaining for a selected MongoDB mongos instance or mongod.
In addition, a MongoDB Capacity Report—which can be scheduled, exported, and shared with key stakeholders—makes it easier to demonstrate and communicate the need to provision more resources to (or reclaim over-provisioned resources within) a MongoDB environment.
