Monitor Your Cluster

Atlas provides built-in tools, alerts, charts, integrations, and logs to help you monitor your cluster. Atlas provides the following ways to monitor your cluster and improve performance.

To optimize your query performance, review the best practices for query performance. You can also analyze slow queries and troubleshoot slow operations executed on your clusters.

Use the following built-in tools:

To optimize your schema design, review our frequently used schema design patterns. You can also improve your schema. Improve your schema based on recommendations from the Performance Advisor and the Data Explorer.

To trigger alerts based on alert conditions and to help ensure cluster performance, configure alerts and resolve them promptly. You can configure alerts based on specific conditions for your databases, users, accounts, and more. When you resolve alerts, you should fix the immediate problem, implement a long-term solution, and monitor your progress.

To monitor your cluster performance, view cluster metrics. View historical throughput, performance, and utilization metrics for your databases. To learn more, review the available metrics.

To receive Atlas alerts in various external monitoring services, integrate with third-party monitoring services.
