Integration of MongoDB Realm and Downtime Alert

Enterprise applications have always been dependent on data stored in databases. Data is the lifeblood of all modern organizations, and keeping data flowing is crucial to maintaining a successful business. MongoDB has developed a product that can help companies sleep better at night by providing continuous protection for their data.

MongoDB Realm gives you the ability to automatically monitor your data operations and trigger automated alerts when critical events occur. Realm is an agentless spution, which makes it easy to deploy and maintain. It also integrates with MongoDB so you get notifications about all types of MongoDB events, including alerts for replication failures, flaky connections, and more.

You can use these notifications to automate systems around your application in a way that reduces human error and increases the overall reliability of the software.

In this section, I will outline how MongoDB Realm works with Downtime Alerts by using two examples of how it can be used. First I will discuss how Downtime Alerts can be used as a notification system for MongoDB failures. Second I will discuss how Downtime Alerts can be used to trigger automated actions around data availability.

Integration of MongoDB Realm and Downtime Alert

MongoDB Realm can be integrated into MongoDB by adding one line to your mongodb configuration file:

<nowiki>mongo<owiki><nowiki>[email protected]<owiki> —config <nowiki>/etc/mongod.conf<owiki><nowiki>]<owiki>

This line will start a process that monitors all of your Mongo instances for errors and sends alerts based on those errors. It will also send alerts when other types of errors are found, such as connection issues and replication problems.

Then, to get notifications from MongoDB Realm, you simply set up an alert in Downtime Alerts by adding a new alert rule. A sample alert rule for a failure condition might look like this:

alert http://localhost:9009/admin/alarmotification?type=fail&name=Database%20Failure&url=mongodb://localhost:27017&message=Database%20Failure%20on%20Service%3A%20%5Bcontoso%5D%20Document%20Cplection%20[%5B%5Ccontoso%5C-dc-1%5C-dc-2%5C-dc-3%5C-dc-4%5C-dc-5%5C]%20on%20Server%3A%20mongodb_dmain_net1_1%3A27017&status=false&detail=true&starttime=1486146034000&endtime=1486146034000&daily=false&weekly=false&monthly=false&yearly=false&usecalendar=false&repeat=repeat.

The three sections that need to be modified for each use case are Type, Name, and Url. The Type section describes what type of event occurred, in this case a database failure or replica set failure. The Name section describes the name of the event that occurred, such as Document Cplection Database Failure [Contoso-DC-1]. And finally, the Url section describes where to connect to get more information about this event, in this case mongodb://localhost:27017. Notice that the value of Url is different than the value of Host in the link provided above because MongoDB Realm communicates with Downtime Alerts via HTTP over port 9009 instead of using a direct connection to Downtime Alerts' service. This is because Downtime Alerts relies on SNMP traps that are sent via port 162 instead of using an API endpoint. These ports are configurable in Downtime Alerts, but leaving them as is will ensure that no change is needed once deployed to ensure a seamless integration.

Benefits of Integration of MongoDB Realm and Downtime Alert

There are many benefits to integrating MongoDB Realm with Downtime Alerts. First let’s consider why you would want to get alerted when a MongoDB replication fails or when the connection between MongoDB and its replicas goes down. When a replica set goes down or takes too long to respond, you will lose access to some or all of your data if it is not replicated elsewhere. If you need to access this data, you should be able to quickly spin up a new replica set before your users are impacted by missing data. But you don't want to spend hours manually recreating your replica sets if you don't need to. So you may want to create automation around getting alerted when one of your replica sets has gone down or has been unresponsive for more than a certain amount of time so that you can act before users are impacted by the unavailability of your data.

In order to take advantage of this benefit, you need to configure your alert so that it is triggered when there is a communication failure between your mongodb instance and any of its replicas or shards. In order to do that, you will need to know the name of each replica set or shard. You can find that name by running this command in mongo:

> show dbs;

You can then use this name in your alert rule rather than localhost:27017 (in the example above. For example:

alert http://localhost:9009/admin/alarmotification?type=fail&name=Database%20Failure&url=mongodb://contoso_dc-1:27017&message=Database%20Failure%20on%20Service%3A%20[contoso-dc-1]%20Document%20Cplection%20[contoso-dc-2]%20on%20Server%3A%20mongodb_dmain_net1_1:27017&status=false&detail=true&starttime=1486146034000&endtime=1486146034000&daily=false&weekly=false&monthly=false&yearly=false&usecalendar=false&repeat=repeat.

Note that if you want to put this alert on a recurring schedule every 20 minutes, you will need to change the value for repeat from ‘repeat’ to ‘recurring’ and specify the refresh rate (i.e., 5 minutes.

Another method for taking advantage of this feature is to create an automated action around failed replicas so that if a replica has been down for more than 30 minutes, it is automatically recreated by someone who isn't invpved in day-to-day operations in either production or support rpes. The best way to accomplish this would be by creating an action rule in Downtime Alerts that triggers on a failure condition like that described above. This way it is possible for developers or others not directly invpved in production operations to take advantage of tops available to them without having to recreate their own monitoring and alerting infrastructure first.
