Percona Distribution for MongoDB is a collection of solutions to run and operate your MongoDB efficiently with the data being consistently backed up.

Percona Distribution for MongoDB includes the following components:

  • Percona Server for MongoDB is a fully compatible source-available, drop-in replacement for MongoDB.

  • Percona Backup for MongoDB is a distributed, low-impact solution for achieving consistent backups of MongoDB sharded clusters and replica sets.

This release of Percona Distribution for MongoDB is based on Percona Server for MongoDB 4.2.24-24 and Percona Backup for MongoDB 2.0.4.

Release Highlights

  • Changed the yielding policy of dataSize command to YIELD_AUTO for both when the command is called with estimate:true or false

  • Prevented dropping empty path component from elemMatch path during index selection

  • Disallowed creating the ‘admin’, ‘local’, and ‘config’ databases with alternative cases in names on sharded clusters

  • Made migration properly handle cases when shard key value modification also results to changes in chunk membership

Percona Backup for MongoDB 2.0.4 provides the ability to specify the custom path to mongod binaries to simplify the physical restore process.
