Service down alert for Mongo Server Community edition


We are using MongoDB Server Community edition 5.0.5. We’ve just finished implementing a PSA architecture. Got the case of a crash this passed weekend with our arbiter mongod.exe service (off-topic), but we obviously weren’t advised about it.

My question: since we are not using the Cloud/Atlas version of Mongo, what would the best approach be to have some kind of monitoring if service isn’t responding… ?

Have a script / task that periodically tries to connect to server… if it fails, then alert admins by email kinda thing?

Looking for ideas and see what other admins are doing for this type of thing with Mongo…

Thanks :slight_smile:
