Cloud Manager recently added a new look at an old feature: hardware monitoring. Specifically, the Automation Agent now handles hardware monitoring for managed processes, which means you don’t have to install munin-node on your machines anymore.
For those of you new to hardware monitoring in Cloud Manager, this means that you can get your MongoDB performance, CPU performance, IOPS, and disk capacity all in one place.
If you’re already running the latest Automation Agent, and a process is managed, you can already get all these lovely graphs:
And yes, it works on Windows, too:
Fetching these metrics via the Cloud Manager Public API is coming soon, as well as alerting on these metrics – stay tuned!
An Open Letter to the Attendees of MongoDB World 2016: Staying Fit Throughout the Conference
Dear World 2016 conference attendees, Looking forward to the fun and excitement of MongoDB World ? Conferences are great for the brain, but the waistline often suffers. I joined MongoDB two years ago, it’s been fantastic in every respect but twenty-eight….pounds that is. Constant travel to events and many late nights with peanut butter M&Ms have taken their toll. Unfortunately, this is a typical side effect of our busy high-tech lives. Can you relate? The MongoDB Events team is on your side. We’ve worked in opportunities to squeeze in some activity at MongoDB World. Here are 10 ways to ensure that increased MongoDB knowledge and great connections are the only after effects of a rewarding week at MongoDB World: Gluten free, vegetarian, and low fat options will be available at all meals. Fill up your plate with mostly healthy stuff and save a corner for decadence. Stay hydrated. We'll have water stations all around. For every cup of coffee, drink a glass of water. Go easy on the booze at the after party. A full bar is at your service, but why not alternate each cocktail with a glass of water? You’ll thank us in the morning. Speaking of the after party - we’ve supplied the world’s best Indie dance band, They Might be Giants . Dance to “ Istanbul Not Constantinople ” and “ You Are Not the Boss of Me Now ” for your daily dose of aerobic activity. Work in some movement during the day. If you don't have time for a full workout, no biggie. The conference hotel, the New York Hilton , takes up a huge city block. Go for a walk around the building and you've covered a quarter of a mile. Take the long way. Conference activities are spread out among three floors. Skip the escalator and climb the stairs. Pace yourself, literally. If you need to take a call, pace the halls instead of finding a chair. There will be a lot of open spaces for you to explore. Get a quick workout in. The gym at the conference hotel is open 24 hours. Book a room at a discounted rate and get your sweat on. Run with MongoDB . Join our engineering VPs for an early morning run through Central Park. All speeds are welcome. We will have front and back guides and multiple pacers. Join our yoga class at MongoDB World , run by MongoDB Senior Paralegal, Minh Cannon. I’ve incorporated many of these changes into my regimen, and they’ve made a huge difference. I’ve lost fifteen pounds! Do you have conference fitness strategies of your own? Share them in the MongoDB World Hub ! You can earn points, win prizes, and impact the event by selecting songs for the playlist and questions for Adam Savage. Hope to see you at MongoDB World! If you see me sitting down, make me walk the hallway. Sincerely, Dina Jacobson Sr. Manager, Global Events At MongoDB World 2016 in New York City, you'll experience first-hand how the world's fastest-growing database is powering today's innovations and can help you gain a competitive advantage.

Hear From the MongoDB World 2022 Diversity Scholars
The MongoDB Diversity Scholarship program is an initiative to elevate and support members of underrepresented groups in technology across the globe. Scholars receive complimentary access to the MongoDB World developer conference in New York, on-demand access to MongoDB University to prepare for free MongoDB certification, and mentorship via an exclusive discussion group. This year at MongoDB World, our newest cohort of scholars got the opportunity to interact with company leadership at a luncheon and also got a chance to share their experience in a public panel discussion at the Community Café. Hear from some of the 2022 scholars, in their own words. Rebecca Hayes, System Analyst at Alliance for Safety and Justice I did an internal transition from managing Grants/Contracts to IT and just finished a data science certificate (Python, Unix/Linux, SQL) through my community college. My inspiration for pursuing STEM was wanting to understand how reality is represented in systems and how data science can be used to change the world. What was your most impactful experience as part of the Diversity Scholarship? Most impactful were the conversations I had with other attendees at the conference. I talked to people from all sectors who were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about shaping the future of databases. The opportunity to hear from MongoDB leaders and then understand how the vision behind the product was being implemented made me feel inspired for my future in STEM. How has the MongoDB World conference inspired you in your learning or your career path? MongoDB World inspired me to understand the real world applications of databases. I left knowing what's possible with a product like MongoDB and the limits of SQL and traditional databases. After the conference, I wrote this article on Medium reflecting on what I learned at the conference. What is your advice to colleagues pursuing STEM and/or on a similar path as you? Embrace what makes you unique. Just because things take time doesn't mean they won't happen. When learning programming and data science, think about how your work relates to the real world and share those thoughts with others. Seek out new perspectives, stay true to yourself, and keep an open mind. Delphine Nyaboke, Junior Software Engineer at Sendy I am passionate about energy in general. My final year project was on solar mini-grid design and interconnection. I have a mission of being at the intersection of energy and AI What inspired me to get into tech is the ability to solve societal problems without necessarily waiting for someone else to do it for you. This can be either in energy or by code. What was your most impactful experience as part of the Diversity Scholarship? My most impactful experience, apart from attending and listening in on the keynotes, was to attend the breakout sessions. They had lovely topics full of learnings and inspiration, including Engineering Culture at MongoDB; Be a Community Leader; Principles of Data Modeling for MongoDB; and Be Nice, But Not Too Nice just to mention but a few.
