Every once in a while, a new database pushes to the front of the news. These databases generally bring a renewed schema and some neat tricks and features others may not offer. Due to the increasing popularity of MongoDB NoSQL databases, we have designed two new wizards for use with Nagios XI 2014: the MongoDB Database Wizard, and MongoDB Server Wizard.
MongoDB Database Wizard will allow you to monitor key metrics such as:
- Number of Collections in the database
- Number of Objects in the database
- The size of the MongoDB Database
Below is an example of the MongoDB Database service checks in action:
MongoDB Server Wizard will allow you to monitor key metrics such as:
- Time to connect to and authenticate with the Database server
- Percent of Free Connections
- Server Memory Usage
- Percentage of time the MongoDB server is locked
- Average time it takes to preform a flush
- Time since the last flush
- Ratio of index hits to misses
- Number of Databases
- Number of Collections
- Queries per second
Below is an example of the MongoDB Server service checks in action:
As you can see, there are quite a handful of useful metrics to monitor, which will help keep you – and your admins – both assured of the MongoDB Database’s health and usage, as well as notified of key issues that may arise. View a full how-to document on using the MongoDB Database Wizard at Monitoring MongoDB Database With Nagios XI and the MongoDB Server Wizard at Monitoring MongoDB Server With Nagios XI.
These two wizards come prepackaged with Nagios XI 2014. If you would like to try out either of the MongoDB wizards and see the latest version of Nagios XI 2014 in action, you can give it a test run by downloading Nagios XI 2014 here with a fully functional 60 day free trial.
