The advanced monitoring of your databases and replica sets will automatically be enabled if you are running .NET 3.5 or above. This is only available for replica sets and not single, master/slave or replica pair deployments.


If you have authentication enabled then you will need to provide a user for the agent to connect with. If you wish to use the advanced MongoDB monitoring this user will need to be on the admin database (i.e. it has access to all databases). 

Also, the username in the connection string should be appended with '(admin)'. See below for an example, where 'user' is the username and 'password' is the password for the appropriate user.
