Shut Down a MongoDB Process

On this page

Ops Manager supports shutting down individual mongod and mongos processes, as well as replica sets and sharded clusters. When you shut down a process, cluster, or replica set, Ops Manager continues to manage it, even though it is not running.

You can later restart your processes, or, if you no longer want Ops Manager to manage them, you can remove them.
