If you have not installed MongoDB and you would like to install it go to https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/installation/ for instructions. If you can not find this plugin in the /usr/lib/panopta-agent/plugins folder, then your version of the Agent is out of date and you should update it to gain access to this feature.

Once the agent is installed, you will need to add the following information to the agent config file (/etc/panopta-agent/panopta_agent.cfg):

[mongo]
hostname = 10.10.10.100
port = 27017
username = mongo_username
password = mongo_password
database = optional_specific_database_to_access
authenticationdb = optional_db_used_for_authentication
