Adding Cluster Nodes to a MongoDB Client

You can discover the nodes for a MongoDB cluster on the Command Center.

If the MongoDB agent is not previously installed on the nodes, after discovery you can install the agent on these nodes.

Before You Begin

In sharded cluster MongoDB deployments, verify that the data directories are different for each shard.

Example of different data directories

  • ShardA

    Node

    Data directory

    Node1

    /dataA

    Node2 (backup secondary node)

    /dataA

    Node3

    /dataA

  • ShardB

    Node

    Data directory

    Node1

    /dataB

    Node2 (backup secondary node)

    /dataB

    Node3

    /dataB
