Getting Started with Deployments¶
On this page
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.
Get Started with Ops Manager¶
Ask your Ops Manager administrator for your Ops Manager URL (or an invitation) and whether you have a pre-existing Ops Manager group.¶
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 group, you will create one upon registering an account.
