Is there, or will there be, an app or add-on to perform activity monitoring for MongoDB?

Is there, or will there be, an app or add-on to perform activity monitoring for MongoDB as there is for Oracle, MS SQL Server and MySQL? Hunk App for MongoDB seems to be only for data collection.

Currently there is no such a thing.

However, MongoDB writes its log into /var/log/mongodb/mongodb.log
Just make sure you turn on the profiling: db.setProfilingLevel(1,50)

Then all you need is to create an Splunk inputs.conf and you are good to go.
For example,

MongoDB Log

[monitor:///var/log/mongodb/mongodb]
sourcetype = mongodb_profile
index = mongodb_metrics

Configuration Files

CLI Scripted Inputs

OS Scripted Inputs

[script://./bin/mongodb_cpu.sh]
interval = 30
sourcetype = cpu
source = cpu
index = mongodb_os
disabled = 0
** If you download Splunk *Nix App you can find many of these scripts to monitor these Linux resources

Thank you for this information. The one issue still to resolve is the formatting of the log; it is BSON (Binary-encoded JSON).
