This page describes the conditions for which you can trigger alerts. You specify conditions and thresholds when configuring alerts. To learn more, see Alerts Workflow.

Note

M0 free clusters and M2/M5 shared clusters only trigger alerts related to the metrics supported by those clusters. See Atlas M0 (Free Cluster), M2, and M5 Limitations for complete documentation on M0/M2/M5 alert and metric limitations.

The conditions in this section apply if you select Host as the alert target when configuring the alert. You can apply the condition to all hosts or to specific type of host, such as primaries or config servers.

Important

During live migration, Atlas disables host alerts.

Host has index suggestions

Raised if Performance Advisor has index suggestions for the host.

If the query targeting ratio for a host is high for a period of 10 minutes, Performance Advisor checks the host for inefficient queries and possible indexes to improve performance. If Performance Advisor determines that the host benefits from one or more indexes, this alert triggers and directs you to create the suggested indexes.

This alert is only available for M10+ clusters, and is enabled by default for M10+ clusters that have Performance Advisor enabled. This alert does not trigger for clusters where Performance Advisor is disabled.

The following alert conditions measure the rate of asserts for a MongoDB process, as collected from the MongoDB serverStatus command's asserts document. You can view asserts through cluster monitoring.

The credits accumulate at a constant rate to provide a guaranteed level of performance. These credits can be used for additional CPU performance. When the credit balance is exhausted, only the guaranteed baseline of CPU performance is provided, and the amount of excess is shown as steal percent.

Note

Atlas triggers this alert only for AWS EC2 clusters that support Burstable Performance. Currently, these are M10 and M20 cluster types.

Important

You should only configure this alert if you depend on secondary reads. For more information on secondary reads, see Query using Pre-Defined Replica Set Tags and Read Preference.

This alert is generally triggered by one of the following conditions:

  • The cluster has experienced a failure and is being auto-healed.

  • The cluster could not be reached because of a network issue.

MongoDB Atlas checks that the downtime did not occur because of your actions, such as rolling index builds. If MongoDB Atlas confirms that the downtime was not intentional, MongoDB Atlas attempts to replace the affected node. If failures occur, Atlas clusters maintain node availability for both reads and writes as long as a majority of nodes are running. To learn more, see How does MongoDB Atlas deliver high availability?.

Query Targeting: Scanned Objects / Returned

Raised if the ratio of documents scanned to documents returned meets or exceeds the specified threshold.

Note

The change streams cursors that the Atlas Search process (mongot) uses to keep Atlas Search indexes updated can contribute to the query targeting ratio and trigger query targeting alerts if the ratio is high.

The following alert conditions apply to replica sets:

Number of elections in last hour is > X

Raised when the number of elections that have occurred in the last hour exceeds the user-specified value of X. The value of X is set when you create the alert. This alert might indicate that the cluster's replication is not in a healthy state, as evidenced by constant elections.

Replica set elected a new primary

Raised when a replica set elects a new primary.

Replica set has no primary

Raised when a replica set does not have a primary. Specifically, when none of the members of a replica set have a status of PRIMARY, the alert triggers. For example, this condition might arise when a set has an even number of voting members resulting in a tie.

If Atlas collects data during an election, this alert might send a false positive. To prevent such false positives, set the alert configuration's after waiting interval (in the configuration's Send to section).

To find possible solutions for this alert, see Alert Resolutions.

Atlas automatically rotates MongoDB master encryption keys every 90 days, but does not rotate the project's CMK. To prevent receiving this alert prematurely, you can modify the default alert period. If you configure the default 90 days alert to be greater than the AWS KMS CMK rotation, Atlas won't create the alert because AWS would have automatically rotated your CMK.

This alert resets automatically if you rotate the project CMK. For documentation on how to rotate your project CMK, see Rotate your AWS Customer Master Key.
