Probe Specific Hardware Requirements
The machines on which the probe is deployed must be functioning MongoDB nodes.
Probe Specific Software Requirements
The probe requires the following software environment:
  • CA Unified Infrastructure Management version 9.02 (or later).
  • Robot version 7.96 (or later).
  • Java Virtual Machine (JVM) version 1.8 or later (deployed as part of the probe package)
  • MongoDB version 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6, 4.0, 4.2 or 4.4 running on Windows (2008 R2, 2012 R2 or 2016), or on Linux (RHEL 7.x or CentOS 7).
  • Percona Server for MongoDB version 4.2 or 4.4.
We recommend Linux kernel 2.6 for better monitoring performance.

  1. Install the package into your local archive.
  2. Drop the package from your local archive onto the targeted robot.
  3. Use Admin Console to access the probe configuration GUI or raw configure options.
Upgrade Considerations
