MongoDB Agent

Before the introduction of the MongoDB Agent, each function -- Automation, Backup, and Monitoring -- ran as a separate agent binary in your project.

The MongoDB Agent runs as a single binary that can perform any -- or all -- of the three functions depending upon what you need.

  • Activate the monitoring and/or backup functions using Ops Manager UI.

  • Activate automation when you create a new cluster or import an existing one.
