MongoDB Monitoring Service (MMS)

From the post:

Today we’re pleased to release the MongoDB Monitoring Service (MMS) to the public for free. MMS is a SaaS based tool that monitors your MongoDB cluster and makes it easy for you to see what’s going on in a production deployment.

One of the most frequently asked questions we get from users getting ready to deploy MongoDB is “What should I be monitoring in production?” Our engineers have spent a lot of time working with many of the world’s largest MongoDB deployments and based on this experience, MMS represents our current “best practices” monitoring for any deployment.

MMS is free. Anybody can sign up for MMS, download the agent, and start visualizing performance data in minutes.

If you’re a commercial support customer, MMS makes our support even better. 10gen engineers can access your MMS data, enabling them to skip the tedious back and forth information gathering that can go on during triaging of issues.

I’m don’t have access to a MongoDB cluster (at least not at the moment). Comments on MMS most welcome.

Given the feature/performance race in NoSQL solutions, should be interesting to see what monitoring solutions appear for other NoSQL offerings!

Or for SQL offerings as well!
