The ease of installing and running MongoDB can lead to neglect of basic database management. Then one day you’re getting frantic calls from a client or coworker about an application that’s crashed. Your current MongoDB setup couldn’t handle the increased usage and simply gave up.
Have you noticed that your app is slow? Are snapshots of your MongoDB instances trending in the wrong direction? Troubleshooting MongoDB isn’t always easy because there are often a combination of issues causing slow database response. One of the most common issues we see slowing down MongoDB stem from index issues.
We’re excited to announce that we now offer ObjectRocket for MongoDB on Microsoft Azure. With this new global offering via Microsoft Azure Cloud, businesses of all sizes can get their data as close to their application as possible, reducing latency and improving data performance.
The MongoDB command line utility, rs.remove(), is used to remove a member from a replica set. Prior to MongoDB version 3.0, the rs.remove() command would cause elections to occur. However, starting with version 3.0 this is no longer the case.
