You can use the MongoDB connector for the exporting engine to archive your agent's metrics to a MongoDB database for long-term storage, further analysis, or correlation with data from other sources.
To use MongoDB as an external storage for long-term archiving, you should first
libmongoc 1.7.0 or higher. Next, re-install Netdata
from the source, which detects that the required library is now available.
To enable data exporting to a MongoDB database, run
./edit-config exporting.conf in the Netdata configuration
directory and set the following options:
enabled = yes
destination = mongodb://<hostname>
database = your_database_name
collection = your_collection_name
You can find more information about the
destination string URI format in the MongoDB
The default socket timeout depends on the exporting connector update interval. The timeout is 500 ms shorter than the
interval (but not less than 1000 ms). You can alter the timeout using the
sockettimeoutms MongoDB URI option.
