New Relic Metric Reporting

The ObjectRocket platform can automatically report metrics about your MongoDB instances to the New Relic monitoring service. If you don’t have an account you can sign up through New Relic. You can then grab your License Key from your Accounts page, by clicking on your account name, and the going to your Account Details using the dropdown on the upper right. Your license key will be displayed on the right hand side of your Account Details page.

Warning

Please note that this is only for MongoDB instances. We currently don’t have official ObjectRocket plugins to monitor our Redis and Elasticsearch products, but we recommend using a third-party plugin called MeetMe. It’s an Open Source plugin, and you can read more about the plugin and how to install it on their GitHub page.

ACLSync

The ObjectRocket platform can automatically retrieve IP addresses from your Rackspace Cloud or AWS environment, and create an ACL for each of those. This feature is currently limited to retrieving IP addresses from a single AWS region.

Enabling ACLSync

By default, ACLs will automatically be created for all instances. For any service you can disable it on a per instance basis.

  • Go to the External Integration Settings page.

  • Add AWS credential information.
    • In the ‘AWS’ section, Select the AWS region from which to retrieve IP addresses.
    • Enter a valid Access Key ID.
