Become a MongoDB DBA: Sharding ins- and outs - part 2

Having recently discussed how to enable sharding on a MongoDB database and define the shard key on a collection, as well as explained the theory behind all this, we now focus on the monitoring and management aspects of sharding. Just like any database requires management, shards need to be looked after. Some of the monitoring and management aspects of sharding, like backups, are different than with ordinary MongoDB replicaSets. Also operations may lead to scaling or rebalancing the cluster. Find out more in this new blog post.
