How to Deploy MongoDB for High Availability

MongoDB provides ReplicaSets to help you address high availability database requirements. Although support for replication and failover is built-in, it is not enough for the database to be considered production-ready. That requires a set of policies and procedures, like getting alerted in case of performance slowdowns, anomalies or failures in a live environment. Backups are essential. Being able to automatically recover from different types of failures can drastically reduce downtime.

How ClusterControl Monitors your Database Servers and Clusters Agentlessly

Agentless monitoring is the collection of performance metrics from databases without installing any agent software on the servers being monitored. This approach is easy to manage and gets you up and running within minutes.
