Review Sharded Clusters
On this page
A sharded cluster is the set of nodes comprising a sharded MongoDB deployment. To view the metrics for a specific Atlas cluster in a project, click the View Monitoring button for that cluster. Alternatively, click on the name of the cluster to open the cluster overview, then click the Metrics tab.
The Metrics tab for sharded clusters provides a side-by-side comparision of shards in one view. The Display drop-down contains many available metrics.
Monitor database deployment metrics to identify performance issues and determine whether your current database deployment meets your requirements. For more information on the metrics available to monitor your database deployments, see Review Available Metrics.
The Metrics view has three distinct sections:

As a result, when rendering metrics for large deployments over a long period of time, Atlas may display metrics at a lower granularity than expected. To learn more about the granularity at which Atlas stores metric data, see Monitoring Data Storage Granularity.
Atlas supports a 10 second granularity only on

When viewing charts, you can do the following:
Zoom in on a period of time.
Click and drag the mouse pointer over a portion of the chart. To reset to the originally selected range (zoom out), double-click the chart.
When you zoom in on one period of time, the Current Display date range in the chart control section automatically updates to reflect the selected period.
