Five MMS Monitoring Alerts to Keep Your MongoDB Deployment on Track

MongoDB Management Service (MMS) is is a cloud-based suite of services for managing MongoDB deployments, providing both monitoring and backup capabilities. In this post, we'll outline 5 alerts you should set up in MMS to keep your MongoDB deployment on track. We’ll explore what each alert means for a MongoDB instance, as well as how to calibrate the alert triggers to be relevant to your environment.

  4. Determine what is a definite problem (critical) 
  5. Determine the likelihood of false positives
