New MongoDB Cluster and Replica Set Visualizations



As of July 15th, the MongoDB Management Service (MMS) implemented a dramatically new data visualization tool for customers’ clusters and replica sets, along with a new view of the hosts page.

To access the cluster and replica set pages, users should view the new hosts deployment page and select the appropriate item.

Via this deployment page, users can see which of your clusters’ mongod processes are primary or secondary, as well as what version of MongoDB they are running, config servers and mongos processes, and an organized topology of the deployment.

Clicking on the thereqmongodb Replica Set will take users to the replica set visualization.

The replica set visualization page received considerable UI updates and a new color scheme. Now customers can view a consolidated summary of performance of the replica set, as well as the data size, whether the replica set has open alerts and is being backed up, as well as all of the members of the replica set with new iconography.

To reach the cluster page visualizations, users should access again the hosts deployment page and click the name of the cluster.

Here customers can view the replica sets within the cluster selected, as well as:

  • The total data size of the cluster
  • Whether there are open alerts for any of the cluster members
  • If the cluster is currently backed up or experiencing backup issues
  • The number of reads, writers, and queued operations on the cluster within the time interval selected.

As always, we welcome your feedback on this new set of visualizations for MongoDB deployments - please open a feature request!
