  • Get Started with Ops Manager

Ops Manager is a web application that lets you create, manage, monitor and back up MongoDB deployments. The web application runs on the Ops Manager server, and software agents run on the servers running MongoDB.

You can use Ops Manager to create new deployments and manage existing ones. To monitor existing deployments, you need to download Ops Manager agents to the servers in the MongoDB deployment.

Ops Manager walks you through adding existing MongoDB deployments to monitor. The choices you make during setup do not limit your choices for the future.



If the Ops Manager is configured to Invitation Only Mode, you can register only by invitation. The invitation provides a URL that displays the registration link.

If you do not have a pre-existing project, you will create one upon registering an account.


Ops Manager walks you through registration and setup of your first deployment.
