I have a managed MongoDB server with two failover nodes. The promo says: “Add redundancy with standby nodes that start serving requests if your primary node fails.”. What’s meant by “primary node fails”? What exactly should happen so that secondary nodes start working? Previously, we had accidents when because of unoptimized queries and too many concurrent users, our own MongoDB server had 100% CPU load and was unoperable. Is it the case?
