Extend the platform, empower your team.
Remotely monitor your SaaS installation of MongoDB (Atlas)
The extension remotely monitors your MongoDB Atlas projects through the MongoDB Atlas Administration API
For SaaS deployments of MongoDB where the Dynatrace OneAgent cannot be installed.
This extension enables insights into the overall health of your Atlas projects, clusters and nodes.
Activate the extension in your environment using the in-product Hub and provide the required configuration settings such as the Project Id and API access keys . Follow the instructions and prompts within the extension settings.
MongoDB Atlas Prerequisites:
This extension used the Atlas Administration API to fetch important metrics and metadata for your Projects, Clusters and Nodes.
It also optionally fetches important Project events as Dynatrace log events.
If enabled, by default ALL mongo events will be ingested into Dynatrace.
You can view the list of events under the 'eventType' parameter at:
listProjectEvents API Reference.
Another good source to view Mongo events is: Mongo alert-types. Note: not all supported Atlas events are documented at this second link.
You can also specify a comma-separated list of events to collect if you only want to ingest specific event types. e.g., "CREDIT_CARD_ABOUT_TO_EXPIRE, NO_PRIMARY, CPS_SNAPSHOT_FALLBACK_FAILED, NDS_X509_USER_AUTHENTICATION_MANAGED_USER_CERTS_EXPIRATION_CHECK".
All events are ingested as 'Info' severity logs. You can configure log preprocessing rules to automatically raise this severity for specific event types. See Dynatrace log Processing
The metrics and events collected through this extension consume Dynatrace Davis Data Units (DDUs). See DDUs for metrics
So, a general formula for the number of metrics would be:
num_process_metrics = Number of projects * Clusters in project * Nodes per Cluster * 108
num_disk_metrics = Number of projects * Clusters in project * Nodes per Cluster * Partitions per Node * 18
Total_metrics = num_process_metrics + num_disk_metrics
You can use the feature sets defined below to enable/disable the collection of specific metric categories.
Only compatible with MongoDB Atlas
Below is a complete list of the feature sets provided in this version. To ensure a good fit for your needs, individual metrics can be activated and deactivated by your administrator during configuration.
Automatically and intelligently observe, analyze and optimize how your the usage, health and performance of your database.
