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.

MongoDB and AWS: How a decade-old collaboration got even better in 2022
Developers select MongoDB because it makes building with data for almost any class of application easy and fast for them. They select Amazon Web Services (AWS) because it offers a comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering more than 200 fully featured services. Bringing together MongoDB Atlas on AWS helps developers build and ship higher quality applications faster and scale them further. MongoDB has collaborated with AWS for close to a decade now, but 2022 has seen dramatic growth in both the quantity and quality of our joint activities, resulting in a strategic collaboration agreement announced earlier this year. Our collaboration spans joint product engineering and integration so MongoDB Atlas is a first-party service on AWS, and also extends to making it easy for customers to procure MongoDB Atlas on AWS. In 2022, we have worked more closely together than ever before. In this post, we'll cover what we've achieved, and how our customers benefit. If at any point you want to stop reading about the partnership and experience it in action, we invite you to get started for free with MongoDB's fully managed, pay-as-you-go listing on the AWS Marketplace . Delivering an outstanding customer experience Since re:Invent 2021, MongoDB and AWS have jointly seen an explosion in customer success, with MongoDB for Startups becoming one of the most widely used offerings in the AWS Activate program after we launched in July. And, since launching in the AWS Marketplace with pay-as-you-go pricing in December 2021, MongoDB Atlas has become one of the most popular self-service listings, with well over 1,000 customers. More broadly, we've seen our AWS Marketplace business show triple-digit growth through significant, mutual investments across engineering, sales, and marketing. We've also found great success working with AWS' Workload Migration and Proof of Concept programs, helping many new customers accelerate their migration to MongoDB Atlas on AWS over the past 12 months. Additionally, while MongoDB works closely with AWS across the globe, we devoted increased attention to Europe this past year, resulting in a considerable increase in customer adoption. As a result, AWS named us their AWS Marketplace Partner of the Year - EMEA in November 2022. One way that we've helped to accelerate such customer success is by making it easier to procure MongoDB Atlas on AWS. Over the past year, MongoDB and AWS have significantly simplified the purchasing experience for customers. We did this across a few key areas. One thing customers love about buying through AWS Marketplace is how seamless it makes the purchasing experience. However, historically this has been slowed somewhat for MongoDB customers by the need to agree to separate legal terms. Starting in November 2022, however, all Atlas on AWS customers purchasing through the AWS Marketplace Self Service listing use AWS Marketplace’s Standard Contract for Marketplace (SCMP) terms and conditions rather than MongoDB Cloud Terms of Service, thereby further reducing friction to getting productive, faster, with MongoDB. Close product collaboration Behind these improvements to our joint purchasing experience were significant improvements to how MongoDB Atlas integrates with key AWS services. MongoDB has long worked seamlessly with core AWS services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and more recently has collaborated with AWS to ensure tight integration with AWS container services like Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), AWS serverless technologies like AWS Lambda, Amazon Eventbridge, and AWS Fargate; and edge computing services like AWS Wavelength . Over the past year, however, we've delved more deeply into AWS machine learning services (Amazon Comprehend, Amazon Kendra, Amazon Lex, etc.), AWS AppSync, Amazon Forecast, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and more. In addition to direct integrations with AWS services, we made it simpler for customers to use MongoDB with important joint partners such as Datadog, Databricks, and Confluent. For Datadog, we improved MongoDB Atlas App Service to support forwarding logs on AWS to Datadog, thereby improving observability through real-time log analytics. With Databricks, we announced MongoDB as a data source within a Databricks notebook, thereby offering data practitioners an easier, more curated experience for connecting Databricks to MongoDB Atlas data. And with Confluent, we strengthened our integrations to help developers easily build robust, reactive data pipelines that stream events between applications and services in real time. Through innovations to the purchasing process and the product experience, we've helped make thousands of customers successful running MongoDB on AWS. Some joint customers, like Unqork , are upending entire industries with innovative approaches to technology and business. Others, like Volvo's Connected Solutions business , rely on MongoDB and AWS to scale their fleet management solution from tens of millions to billions of daily events. Other recent customers include Verizon , Marsello , GLS , and Shopline . Get started with MongoDB Atlas on AWS You needn't take our word for it, however. With just a few clicks — and no risk — you can get started for free with MongoDB Atlas on AWS . There's no upfront commitment, and if you choose to continue to build with MongoDB on AWS, you only pay for what you use.
