We are pleased to announce the initial release of Edda. Edda is a tool
for MongoDB that takes mongod log files and generate easy-to-parse
pictures of the represented servers.

MongoDB servers generate some pretty substantial log files. These
lengthy logs are one of the more important tools we have for diagnosing
issues with MongoDB servers. However, correlating logs from multiple
servers can be time-consuming. Enter Edda, a log visualizer for
MongoDB. We hope that this tool will be helpful to MongoDB
Possible states represented.
For its first release, we focused on visualizing replica sets with
Edda, we plan to support visualizing logs from sharded clusters in the
A three-member set with one primary, one secondary, and one down node.
Want to try Edda? Install it with pip!
$ pip install edda
Then run Edda from the command line, giving one or more log files for
it to parse:
$ edda server1.log server2.log server3.log
Edda requires a mongod to be running. Once Edda has parsed the logs, it
will pop up a browser window with a timeline of the events.
You can run Edda on any subset of log files available. This is an
example of running Edda on one log file from a seven-member replica set.
Check out our Github repo for feature requests, bug reports, and
further documentation on Edda: https://github.com/kchodorow/edda
A bit about the team: Edda was designed, coded, tested, packaged, and
released by Samantha Ritter and Kaushal Parikh, two of 10gen’s summer
interns. We are so happy to have the chance to build a tool for MongoDB
and see it through its first release.
