Chapter 1 Lab: Create and Deploy an Atlas Cluster

Hello! I followed the steps for the lab then got these graphs:

I looked at the first and last graph. Both were not increasing so I answered “No,” but the final answer is “Yes.” It says I must have done something wrong.

Hi @Gabrielle_Jackie_Candano,

Welcome to the MongoDB Community Forums,

There is a note just above the image saying:

“When the dataset is loaded the graph labeled “Logical Size” on the right side of the screen should go up and display the size of the dataset that is above zero and below 512 MB. Your graph may look different than the picture below.”

Now, after considering the question, the note, and your graph screenshot, the answer would be “Yes”, as the logical size of your cluster has grown above zero and below 512 MB. This shows that the sample data set has been loaded successfully and this behaviour is similar to the behaviour shown in the Lab’s screenshot. And hence the option “Yes” would be correct for your case.


I hope it helps. Moreover, we wish you Happy learning with the rest of the course.
In case you have any doubts, please feel free to reach out to us.

So it does not matter if the graph decreased after?

Hey @Gabrielle_Jackie_Candano, Probably No!

I see. Thank you so much!
