Watch the replay: how to monitor MongoDB (if you’re really a MySQL DBA)

Thanks to everyone who joined us for this week’s webinar on how to monitor MongoDB (for the MySQL DBA). Art van Scheppingen, Senior Support Engineer at Severalnines, discussed the most important metrics to keep an eye on for MongoDB and described them in plain MySQL DBA language and outlined the open source tools available for MongoDB monitoring and trending. The webinar also included a demo of ClusterControl’s MongoDB metrics, dashboards, custom alerting and other features to track and optimize the performance of your MongoDB system.
