Why monitor MongoDB Cluster?
Because of its ease of use, capability to handle high volumes of data and ability to scale sideways or up, to accommodate increasing loads., MongoDB Cluster database server is used as the backend for many mission-critical applications. Since the stability of these applications hinges on the availability and the operational efficiency of a clustered node, administrators need to keep a close watch on the health of the nodes in the cluster. To help administrators in this mission, eG Enterprise provides a specialized monitoring model for a MongoDB Cluster database server, with the help of which administrators can keep a constant check on the availability and overall performance of that node. To use this model, only a single eG external agent is required; this agent sits on a remote host and determines the health of the target MongoDB Cluster.
