We currently provide counters in server status for the number of attempted and successful authentications per mechanism.
We should provide an additional counter which indicates the number of authentication attempts for intra-cluster auth. For X.509 this means an RDN satisfying the isClusterMember() definition. For user/password mechanisms such as SCRAM, this means authentications using the admin.__system user.
The counts in "clusterAuthenticate" will represent a subset of the total number of authentications counted by "authenticate". We will NOT exclude them from the "authenticate" count.
Reference https://github.com/mongodb/mongo/commit/7250f407321e70bcb76bb1e21a7679670d29919d which added the existing counters for where to make these changes.
