MongoHQ + New Relic = <3


With the release of the New Relic Platform, customers can instantly route MongoHQ database performance metrics to New Relic. Add your New Relic license key to your MongoHQ database, let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes, and (boom) a new MongoHQ performance dashboard in New Relic. For customers of MongoHQ and New Relic who immediately understand the value, check out our MongoHQ + New Relic integration documentation to get started!


The above chart shows the MongoDB opcounters - queries, deletes, updates, getmores, and commands. MongoDB opcounters will reveal how database usage changes as your application grows. Also, daily patterns and usage spikes will be easily found. Both of these can you deliver a smoother application to your customers.

Charts have all the New Relic goodness: drag and drop time selections with precision to the minute.

Performance Indicators

To dive into performance issues, see the page faults and lock percentage charts. With MongoDB, page faults and lock percentage are symptoms of slowing performance. New Relic Platform + MongoHQ integration will keep you on top of your trends as your application usage grows along side your database, and keep ahead of your database and application growth.

Historical Views for All!

And now for the big reveal: historical database performance metrics. With the performance metrics being sent to New Relic, at anytime, compare current performance with the past. Have a usage spike last week? Want see how your database performed during the usage spike (allthethings)? Now it is simple to get started.
