Chart Title Chart ID Chart Description
CPU Utilization machine-cpu-utilization The percent of time the CPU(s) were busy.
Disk Available machine-disk-available The percent of disk space that is available.
Disk Utilization machine-disk-utilization The percent of time the disks were busy.

MySQL Rows Affected machine-mysql-handler-rows-affected Number of rows affected by inserts, updates, or deletes.
MySQL Threads Connected machine-mysql-threads-connected Number of threads connected, regardless of what they are doing.
MySQL Threads Running machine-mysql-threads-running Number of threads actively running, i.e. not sleeping.
Slow Queries Throughput machine-slow-queries Rate of queries executed that are considered “slow,” i.e. longer than the long_query_time or log_min_duration_statement.
MongoDB Asserts mongo-asserts Asserts are errors in MongoDB; a large number usually indicates an application problem.
MongoDB Time Since Last Flush mongo-backflushing-last The timestamp of the last completed flush operation in the ISODate format. If this value is more than a few minutes past your server’s current time and accounting for differences in time zone, restarting the database may result in some data loss. Also consider ongoing operations that might skew this value by routinely blocking write operations.
MongoDB Intra-Cluster Connection Pool mongo-connection-pool Shows the connection activity between the selected server and other members of its sharded cluster, over time. For Mongos, this measurement provides context on the number of active requests to the cluster.
MongoDB Connections mongo-connections Connections indicate the total number of clients on the server. Most clients use connection pooling, so if you see a high number of connections your application connection pool may be too large.
MongoDB Page Faults mongo-extra-page-faults Shows page faults over time for the server; high page faults may relate to poor performance and can indicate your working set does not fit in memory.
MongoDB Active Clients mongo-global-lock-active-clients Shows clients actively running or waiting on a lock to run; too many active or queued clients may indicate that your server does not have enough resources for its workload.
MongoDB Query Latency Bands mongo-latency-bands Shows a count of query executions within different latency bands. An increase in executions jumping to higher bands may indicate a stall in the server.
MongoDB Memory Usage mongo-mem Shows memory consumption in the server; if using MMAPv1 “mem.mapped” reports how much actual data is mapped into memory.
MongoDB Open Cursors mongo-metrics-cursor-open Shows cursor activity in the server over time. A large number of open or timed_out cursors may be a sign of an application error.
MongoDB Document Operations mongo-metrics-document Shows document-level activity in the server over time; spikes should be investigated to make sure the database is not overloaded.
MongoDB getLastError Waits mongo-metrics-lasterr-count The total number of getLastError operations with a specified write concern (i.e. w) that wait for one or more members of a replica set to acknowledge the write operation (i.e. a w value greater than 1.)
MongoDB getLastError Timeouts mongo-metrics-lasterr-tout The number of times that write concern operations have timed out as a result of the wtimeout threshold to getLastError.
MongoDB getLastError Total Wait Time mongo-metrics-lasterr-wait The total amount of time in milliseconds that the mongod has spent performing getLastError operations with write concern (i.e. w) that wait for one or more members of a replica set to acknowledge the write operation (i.e. a w value greater than 1.)
MongoDB Record Moves mongo-metrics-record-moves When using MMAPv1 shows the number of documents that were re-written because they exceeded their allocated record-size. If you see high activity here you may want to review the record-allocation strategy configured for your server.
MongoDB Scanned Items mongo-metrics-scanned-items Shows the number of scanned index entries and document objects as well as the number of operations that could not use and index for sorting. A high ratio of scanned_objects/scanned may indicate that your indexes are not effective for your working set.
MongoDB Deletes From TTL Indexes mongo-metrics-ttl-deletes The total number of documents deleted from collections with a ttl index.
MongoDB Passes For TTL Deletes mongo-metrics-ttl-passes The number of times the background process removes documents from collections with a ttl index.
MongoDB Request Count mongo-network-requests The total number of distinct requests that the server has received. Use this value to provide context for the network.bytesIn and network.bytesOut values to ensure that MongoDB’s network utilization is consistent with expectations and application use.
MongoDB Network Use mongo-network The number of bytes of network traffic sent and received by this database. Use these values to ensure that network traffic sent to the mongod process is consistent with expectations and overall inter-application traffic.
MongoDB Operations mongo-op-counters Shows command-level activity in the server over time. Similar to “Document Operations” but be aware that a single command can generate activity on multiple separate documents.
MongoDB Oplog Window mongo-oplog-window The time difference between the first and last operations in the oplog. If a secondary is down longer than the oplog window it will require a full sync.
MongoDB Query Latency mongo-query-latency Shows the average time for a given query to complete; spikes may indicate a general slowdown or they may indicate more extreme slowdowns in a few areas of your server workload. Consult your Query Latency Bands to determine which is the case.
MongoDB Replica Lag mongo-repl-delay The optime difference between the slave and primary. Excessive lag makes members ineligible to quickly become the primary and increases the possibility that distributed read operations will be inconsistent.
MongoDB Replica Headroom mongo-repl-headroom The difference between the primary\’s oplog window and the replica lag of the secondary. If this value goes negative, write operations will be overwritten before secondaries have a chance to replicate them requiring a full sync.
MongoDB WiredTiger Cache Activity mongo-wt-cache-activity Shows how often data is read into/written from the WiredTiger cache. High cache activity may indicate that your server needs more memory; check for disk activity to see if your working set does not fit in memory.
MongoDB WiredTiger Cache Bytes mongo-wt-cache-bytes Shows memory usage of the WiredTiger internal cache.
MongoDB WiredTiger Cache Page Eviction mongo-wt-cache-page-eviction Show statistics on pages evicted from the cache over time. If you have high unmodified page evictions coupled with spikes in disk read activity it may indicate your working set is too large to fit in memory.
MongoDB WiredTiger Concurrent Transactions mongo-wt-conc-transactions Shows statistics on active and available concurrent operations. Consistently high active operations may indicate that the server cannot keep up with your workload.
MongoDB WiredTiger Connection I/Os mongo-wt-connection-ios Shows statistics on read/write operations made over time. These provide a good overview of storage-engine level activity and include operations against memory as well as disk.
MongoDB WiredTiger Transaction Checkpoint Times mongo-wt-transaction-checkpoint-time Shows statistics on the time it takes to execute checkpoints in the storage engine; increases in checkpoint time may indicate an I/O bottleneck in the server.

MySQL Temp usage mysql-status-temp-usage Metrics about MySQL’s use of temporary files and tables. If created_tmp_disk_tables is large, you may want to increase the tmp_table_size or max_heap_table_size value to lessen the likelihood that internal temporary tables in memory will be converted to on-disk tables.
