Guest post by Sam Weaver, Product Manager at MongoDB
MongoDB is the fastest-growing database in the world. It has seen phenomenal adoption over the last few years – with 9 million downloads and deployments in over a third of the Fortune 100, MongoDB isn’t just found in developer led start-ups, but is also prevalent in operations-focused enterprises. We have developed a product that not only makes it easy for enterprises to implement new projects, but is easy to integrate into their existing infrastructure.
As a product manager at MongoDB, I get to speak to MongoDB users every day. From these conversations, it’s very obvious that different people have different goals. For example: operations teams want to see exactly how their production cluster is performing at any given point of time. They want to be able to set alerts on key metrics so that they can be notified when anything is out of the ordinary. It’s also crucial for them to have historical information on the cluster performance over time to help them spot trends – and decide when to scale.
For those that need it, MongoDB has its own monitoring, backup and automation tools that can be deployed in your own data center – MongoDB Ops Manager. In many cases, users want to manage their entire deployment from a single pane of glass, which is a capability supported by HP Operations Bridge.
Until now, it has not been possible to monitor MongoDB through HP without investing development time. With the availability of the HP OMi Management Pack for MongoDB, operations teams can seamlessly monitor their entire MongoDB deployment with centralized HP Operations Bridge installation, along with other IT applications and infrastructure.
This first version of the management pack allows you to measure vital metrics in your MongoDB cluster and view them within a single consolidated console. Over time, we will be expanding the integration between MongoDB and HP; you can expect to see comprehensive monitoring metrics and automation capabilities by integrating with MongoDB Ops Manager APIs, in the future releases of the management pack.
