Updated 2/10/2017

Mystery: Constant Query Time Despite Varying Loads

A little while awhile ago VividCortex's engineering team encountered a minor mystery when observing some trends in time_us metrics in a MongoDB database.

Fault Detection Released for MongoDB

As we noted last week on our product updates page, VividCortex has recently added fault detection support for MongoDB. Adaptive fault detection is one of VividCortex’s unique and most powerful features: it’s a practical and useful application of the concept of “work-centric” monitoring.

We’re excited to be introducing this key resource to MongoDB users.

VividCortex Announces Database Monitoring for MongoDB

We are excited to announce that VividCortex now supports MongoDB, a flexible and scalable NoSQL database. After announcing PostgreSQL support in January and Redis in April, our brainiacs continue to create a unified solution for diverse systems.

During the beta period, VividCortex’s MongoDB customers were impressed, as Chris Clarke, DevOps engineer at Parse.ly states: “VividCortex’s highly granular data, including detailed information about each query made against our MongoDB clusters, is invaluable. Installation was a breeze, and the system immediately spotted two problematic queries that had evaded all our other monitoring systems.”
