MongoDB Usage

Enable MongoDB Usage UI and MongoDB Usage Data Collection

If MongoDB Usage UI is set to true, this page displays information about the MongoDB Usage collected via daily snapshots.

If this page contains no data, you can populate it with data with one of two methods:

Sections of the Page

This page has two parts: a usage summary and a table of MongoDB deployments.

Usage Summary

This card contains a section for each server type that your Ops Manager deployment between the dates selected.

Each server type section contains three headings:

Heading Description
RAM Used Greatest amount of RAM used on the date with the greatest use.
Total Nodes Count of nodes used on the date with the greatest use.
Date When this server type had its greatest use.

The date of greatest use depends on the server type:

Server Type Date of Greatest Use Measured
RAM Pool When the greatest amount of RAM was used for all hosts running that server type.
All other server types When the greatest number of all hosts of that server type were running.

Deployments Table

This table contains each server and describes the server type associated, as well as important information about the server’s processes and their deployments.

Actions

From this page, you can:

Determine Server Type Usage over Time

To review which server types were in use for your MongoDB Enterprise installations during a given time period:

  1. Select a start date from the From box.
  2. Select an end date from the To box.

The Usage Summary updates automatically with the applicable values. This usage summary covers all hosts, organizations, and projects.

Apply New Server Type to Multiple Hosts

To change the server type of multiple hosts at once:

  1. Check the box at the left the columns containing the hosts to which you wish to apply the new server type.
  2. Select the desired server type from the Apply a Server Type dropdown.

This action updates these hosts to have that server type for all existing and future usage snapshots. The new server type does not apply to the timeframe you specified using the date selectors.

Apply New Server Type to Specific Host

To change the server type of one host, use the dropdown in its row under the Server Type column.

This action updates this host to have that server type for all existing and future usage snapshots. The new server type does not apply to the timeframe you specified using the date selectors.
