MongoDB is a free and open-source cross-platform document-oriented database program, published under the GNU Affero General Public License. Classified as a NoSQL database program, and uses JSON-like documents with schemas. As a distributed database at its core, high availability, scalability, and geographic distribution are built in and easy to use. MongoDB was founded in 2007 by Dwight Merriman, Eliot Horowitz and Kevin Ryan.  The Telegraf input plugin makes MongoDB performance monitoring accessible.

Telegraf Input Plugin: MongoDB Performance Monitoring

Collect and graph statistics from your MongoDB performance monitoring database to keep it performant. The Telegraf plugin collects MongoDB stats exposed by serverStatus and few more and creates a single measurement containing values.

MongoDB Basics

MongoDB is a free and open-source cross-platform document database program. It supports field, range queries, and regular expression searches. Queries can return specific fields of documents and also include user-defined JavaScript functions. Queries can also be configured to return a random sample of results of a given size. Fields in a MongoDB document can be indexed with primary and secondary indices.

Benchmarking InfluxDB vs. MongoDB for Time Series Workloads

Using the right tool for the right job is critical to your success. Many people try to use MongoDB as a time series database but quickly learn that it is difficult to maintain.

Download the tech paper and watch the webinar on the comparative performance and features of InfluxDB and MongoDB for common time-series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance.
