MongoDB: Collection Size

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux

This check monitors the size parameters of MongoDB collections:

- Collection size: The total uncompressed size in memory of all records in a collection. The size does not include the size of any indexes associated with the collection

- Storage size: The total amount of storage allocated to this collection for document storage.

- Total index size: The total size of all indexes

Note: If the MongoDB is running as a replica set, this check is not discovered on the same host where the mk_mongodb plugin is installed. The data is piggybacked to a pseudo host named after the replica set name, intead.


The name of the database followed by {.} followed by the name of the collection


One service is created for each collection.
