Edda, a log visualizer for MongoDB

Edda © 2014 MongoDB, Inc.

Authors: Samantha Ritter, Kaushal Parikh


You must have the following installed as prerequisites for running Edda.

NOTE: version 0.7.0 is the latest version of Edda on PyPi. This version only supports logs from Mongod up to v2.4. To use logs from MongoDB v2.6 and newer, please clone from the repository instead.


In order to run edda you must first have a mongod running:

$ mongod

Give the log files from your servers as command-line arguments to edda. Please provide only log files from the same server cluster!

$ python edda/run_edda.py --options filename1 filename2 ...
(see python run_edda.py --help for options)

After each run, edda generates a '.json' file that contains all of the information required to recreate the current run. Run the '.json' file just as you would a '.log'. If you've run edda before, you can pass in a .json file to skip the processing step and go straight to visualization:

$ python edda/run_edda.py previous_edda_data.json

There are some sample log files in edda/sample_logs you can run if you don't have any log files of your own yet.
