MongoDB tools container to help manage MongoDB container / kubernetes based deployments

Sometimes you just need to manage or debug your MongoDB container environment or kubernetes cluster with MongoDB in it. This container can launched inside or outside a kubernetes cluster and contains many of the tools you’ll need to manage your MongoDB environment. A sample use of this container could be the use case of performing tasks on a mongoDB cluster within a kubernetes cluster. Instead of trying to connect to MongoDB from outside the kubernetes cluster, launch a container within the kubenetes cluster and run tasks from inside the cluster. Another use case is that I don’t want to install the mongoDB tools on my host. In this case, just startup a container, use the tools and then exit the container. No tools would be installed on the host.
