How can I send mongodb data, stats and infos from my DigitalOcean MongoDB database to my Grafana Dashboard without Prometheus?

I’m trying to create a MongoDB Dashboard on Grafana to get all data I need (logs, statistics, queries…). I’ve seen that I can get all these information with Prometheus (but I can’t install it with managed MongoDB Database) so I wander if there is any method to get all the data I need.

I’ve already used db.stats(); internal function to get the data but it’s not enough.

Hi there,

You should be able to achieve this with Prometheus and the MongoDB Exporter running on a Droplet.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

However, when configuring the MongoDB exporter, you should use the Managed MongoDB URI rather than localhost.

That way the exporter will connect to the Managed database cluster, export the required data to Prometheus, and then you can visualize it in Grafana.

Let me know how it goes!
