I'm having problem monitoring MongoDB 3.2 with Stackdriver as of 28 Aug 2016.

There is no mention of mongo whatsoever in /var/log/syslog but if I made a configuration error on the .conf file, it complains so I know it's loading the file correctly...

So no errors, but no mention of mongo either in /var/log/syslog and https://app.google.stackdriver.com/services/mongodb claims I haven't installed the agent.

gke-fatih-standard-fb894cbb-d7ue:/opt/stackdriver/collectd/etc$ sudo service stackdriver-agent restart
[....] Restarting Stackdriver metrics collection agent: stackdriver-agentoption = Interval; value = 60.000000;
Created new plugin context.
option = Interval; value = 60.000000;
Created new plugin context.
option = PIDFile; value = /var/run/stackdriver-agent.pid;
option = Interval; value = 60.000000;
Created new plugin context.
. ok

$ tail -F /var/log/syslog

Note that instance/node is monitored correctly, only MongoDB is problematic.

/opt/stackdriver/collectd/etc/collect.d/mongo0.conf :

# scheduled to node: gke-fatih-standard-fb894cbb-d7ue
# This is the monitoring configuration for MongoDB.
# Look for STATS_USER, STATS_PASS, MONGODB_HOST and MONGODB_PORT to adjust your configuration file.
LoadPlugin mongodb
<Plugin "mongodb">
    # When using non-standard MongoDB configurations, replace the below with
    #Host "MONGODB_HOST"
    #Port "MONGODB_PORT"
    # Must use the load balancer because we don't know the fixed nodePort
    Host "xxx"
    Port "27017"

    # If you restricted access to the database, you can set the username and
    # password here:
    User "stats"
    Password "xxx"
</Plugin>

Google is deprecating their non-GCP focused Stackdriver integrations (like Mongo) and moving to the BindPlane MIaaS platform as their supported monitoring integrations platform for non-GCP datasources.

More details can be found here:

After doing sudo service stackdriver-agent restart again (which I have done before) and perhaps ~30 minutes of original incident, the metrics are now detected by Stackdriver.

So if you're sure you've done everything right and no errors, you may try restarting stackdriver-agent multiple times and waiting ~30 minutes.

The lack of anything mongo-related in /var/log/syslog is an issue. Which I hope @Corey-Kosak can give more information.
