Improvements to the MongoDB Backup Agent. It's Time to Upgrade!



We’ve made several major improvements and bug fixes to the MongoDB Backup Agent used by MMS, including:

  • More granular restore points for sharded clusters
  • Support for the latest version of MongoDB, version 2.6
  • Improved packaging with service scripts to make deployment easier
  • SSL connectivity improvements, resulting in fewer connection resets and hangs
  • Fixed a file descriptor resource leak

We encourage all backup users to upgrade to the latest agent version for a better overall experience with the service.

To access these improvements, please download the agent from the MongoDB Management Service by going to Settings > Backup Agent.
