Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project ID. For existing groups, your group/project ID remains the same. The resource and corresponding endpoints use the term groups.

Get measurements for a specific Atlas MongoDB process. An Atlas MongoDB process can be either a mongod or mongos.

Note

To calculate some metric series, Atlas takes the rate between every two adjacent points. For these metric series, the first data point has a null value because Atlas can't calculate a rate for the first data point given the query time range.

The Atlas API authenticates using HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide a programmatic API public key and corresponding private key as the username and password when constructing the HTTP request. To learn how to configure API access for an Atlas project, see Configure Atlas API Access.

GET /groups/{GROUP-ID}/processes/{HOST}:{PORT}/measurements
Parameter
Type
Necessity
Description
GROUP-ID
string
Required
Unique 24-hexadecimal digit string that identifies the project that owns this Atlas MongoDB process.
HOST
string
Required
Hostname, FQDN, IPv4 address, or IPv6 address of the machine running the Atlas MongoDB process.
PORT
number
Required
IANA port to which the Atlas MongoDB process listens.
Name
Type
Necessity
Description
Default
pageNum
integer
Optional
Page number, starting with one, that Atlas returns of the total number of objects.
1
itemsPerPage
integer
Optional
Number of items that Atlas returns per page, up to a maximum of 500.
100
includeCount
boolean
Optional
Flag that indicates whether Atlas returns the totalCount parameter in the response body.
true
pretty
boolean
Optional
Flag that indicates whether Atlas returns the JSON response in the prettyprint format.
false
envelope
boolean
Optional

Flag that indicates whether Atlas wraps the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

Endpoints that return a list of results use the results object as an envelope. Atlas adds the status parameter to the response body.

false
granularity
string
Required

Duration in ISO 8601 notation that specifies the interval between measurement data points.

Example

PT1M specifies 1-minute granularity.

Atlas supports the following subset of ISO 8601-formatted time periods:

When you specify granularity, you must specify either period or start and end.

Atlas retrieves database metrics every 20 minutes by default. Results include data points with 20 minute intervals.

To learn more, see View MongoDB Processes.

period
string
Required

Duration in ISO 8601 notation that specifies the length of time in the past to query. Mutually exclusive with start and end.

Example

To request the last 36 hours, specify: period=P1DT12H.

start
string
Required
Timestamp in ISO 8601 date and time format in UTC when to start retrieving measurements. If you specify start you must also specify end. Mutually exclusive with period.
end
string
Required

Timestamp in ISO 8601 date and time format in UTC when to stop retrieving measurements.

If you specify end you must also specify start. Mutually exclusive with period.

m
string
Optional

Type of measurements this endpoint return. If you don't set m, the endpoint returns all measurements.

To specify multiple values for m, you must repeat the m parameter.

Example
../measurements?m=<measurement>&m=<measurement>&m=...

You must specify measurements that are valid for the host. Atlas returns an error if any specified measurements are invalid.

The Measurement Values section details these metrics.

This endpoint doesn't use HTTP request body parameters.

Important
Limited Metrics for Free/Shared Tier Clusters

M0/M2/M5 clusters return a subset of the metrics documented.

If you set the query parameter to envelope=true, the resource wraps the response in a content object.

The HTTP response returns a JSON document that includes the following objects:

Name
