Screen Shot 1


dbKoda lets you perform administrative activities using fil-in-the-blanks actions from the database tree. Manage configuration, user’s roles, logging, database storage and data import/export without having to lookup obscure MongoDB syntax. We construct the appropriate commands as you fill-in-the-blanks, so you can re-use the command in admin scripts or tweak the syntax as desired. dbKoda includes an SSH terminal which allows command line access to the server OS, so you can issue OS commands directly from within the dbKoda product.

Screen Shot 2


dbKoda includes a unique real-time performance dashboard that shows the current load on your database server including operating system and MongoDB server statistics. Drill into top connections to identify operations that are currently consuming resources. From here, kill long running operations, or tune the queries that are adding the most load. dbKoda integrates with the MongoDB profiling system giving you another way to identify and tune problematic queries.
