Nerf Herder

A companion service to mongod to keep long running queries from causing chaos. Every so often config.interval nerfHerder will poll mongo to find a list of current operations. nerfHerder will then loop through each operation and evaluate each rule in config.rules[]. Each rule is passed an operation. The rule can due whatever logic it wants and then return a boolean value. true means the nerf lives, false means the nerf dies. If a rule returns false for an operation killOp will be called to kill it.
