  1. Atlas activity feed

    We want option to export Atlas activity feed in a file to export and work with it. Parse it etc ...

    Even better, make a collection with it.

  2. Billing Alerts Improvement

    We find the conditions for billing alerts to be very limited. We were hoping we would be able to setup an alert that triggers when a certain threshold of our total subscription amount has been used for better monitoring. For example, >= 75% of the total subscription amount is used.

  3. Stackdriver Integration

    Atlas Monitoring UI is great, but to ease centralization of alerts and dashboards..., it would be nice to have all atlas metrics in Cloud Monitoring too.

  4. Credits by period

    Provide the ability to display and export credits by period (from date - to date) instead of selecting each single month, so that uers can easily display credit trends, etc. without downloading a lot of cvs and merge them togheter.

  5. Rename Hardware Metric "Util %"

    Under hardware metrics for a given replica set, there is a metric for "Util %". It is unclear on what this represents. After careful digging through the documentation, it appears to be a metric for Disk Bandwidth Utilization. I believe the metric name should be updated to reflect at least "Disk Util %", if not something more specific.

  6. Identification and labelling of MongoDB connections

    It'd be REALLY useful if there was an ability to provide a label (basically a string) when creating a new connection to MongoDB from an application, to say where the connection is coming from.

    For example we use a bunch of microservices and each API sets up a new connection. It'd be very useful to be able to see how many connections each API has at any given point, as it'd allow us to determine if the microservice is misbehaving with the database etc.

  7. More detailed update status

    It would be amazingly helpful to see more detailed information on recovering nodes. Just knowing that the node is, for example, "81% of the way on initial sync" is much more informational (and lets users know that it isn't stuck) as compared to the node being in "Startup2" recovery.

  8. Display chart annotations more conspicuously

    To access chart annotations, users have to first hover over the metrics display, click on the info icon next to the title of a specific metric, and then read the annotations under the explanation of that metric. I didn't know they even existed until a support person happened to mention the vertical lines and I asked what they were. It would be more user-friendly to have the annotations (really, a legend for vertical lines) displayed separately in a more conspicuous location. Maybe in an info icon next to the annotation toggle? Another option would be for the vertical lines to…

  9. Graph connections per user (or per database)

    Show a graph of connections per user.

    It would be very useful to see how many connections each user has (or also, each db) over time.

    It would allow us to see more clearly and faster which service uses how many connections.

  10. Mongodb atlas logs - IP whitelist information

    Hi Team,
    We understand that network whitelist information (IPs added/removed) will be available only in portal under project activity feed. As our requirement is to access this information via API.

    Please let us know is there any feasibility of having these project level network whitelist information through API or in db logs in near future.

  11. Extend sub-hourly metrics retention to 72 hours

    Right now the 1- and 5-minute metric data is lost after 48 hours (when it is combined into the hourly data). This makes it impossible to take a close look, on a weekday, at an event that occurred over the weekend.

    It would be nice to be able to look at a problem on the weekend and say "I'll look at this more closely on Monday", and then have the ability to actually investigate it on Monday.

  12. Allow to resend alert to a PagerDuty service

    Like with other type of alert targets (Send to), we would like to be able to resend an alert to PagerDuty.

    The reason is that an alert sent to PagerDuty can be mistakenly resolved but the real issue is still there, and the alert is still firing in Atlas.

    Because it is already firing, it won't fire again so from that moment on, there is no way to get a notification of that alert so we might be missing a real issue.

  13. Project Alerts: show details about "Closed Alerts"

    In "Project Alerts" we can only see certain details about "Closed Alerts," e. g. for an "Index Suggestion" we can only see the timestamp and the fact, that there was an index suggestion. You can't see what the specific suggestion was. So if you look through the history of alerts, you cannot tell if for multiple alerts it was always about the same index to be created, or whether it was for different indexes.

    Likewise, for "Daily amount billed ($) is above threshold" you can see that the threshold was exceeded, but you can't see what the specific billed amount…

  14. Precautionary Change/Recommendations for Shard Drops

    If a user submits a configuration change to drop a shard, Atlas will sift through the cluster metrics and advise any necessary changes needed in order to complete the change without any errors/delays. For example, it will share the correct number of IOPS/cluster tier that needs to be used since the workload to drain a shard will increase; as well as other precautionary measures that should happen prior to dropping the shard (i.e. balancer needs to be turned on, etc).

  15. Use 24-hour time format in Metrics date pickers

    Timestamps in Metrics plots are displayed in 24-hour time format, but the date/time filter inputs require 12-hour time (using am/pm).

    screenshot: https://p-37FYgJ.b1.n0.cdn.getcloudapp.com/items/L1upe7Wv/Image%202020-06-25%20at%204.28.22%20PM.png?v=ec3b0551ea4035a207a90ab83817bba6

    12-hour time is not widely used around the world, and it is cumbersome to use in the date pickers especially give that other parts of the UI use 24-hour time.

    Can we update these date pickers to use 24-hour time instead?

  16. Alerts based on Activity Feed - Rollback

    Our main concern is 'Host experienced a rollback' is not an alert option!

    Ideally, anything that shows up in the activity feed should be available as an alert.

  17. Allow bulk changes to alerts - e.g. changing slack channel

    Changes alerts is really painful. For one thing, pressing the Enter key doesn't close the dialog and nor does pressing Escape.

    This makes it really painful to change something simple like the slack channel used for alerts.

  18. Allow to create Dashboard

    Please provide feature to create a dashboard for metrics like CPU, memory consumption etc for a cluster or more than one cluster in single graphs like for cpu one graph, for memory one graph like that just like monitoring tools provide for example zabbix screens and dashboards, stackdriver dashboards, dynatrace dashboards.

    This is to have a glance on our entire architecture instead of checking each and every cluster every time. This will be particularly useful during load tests or business peak period where we need to check more than one cluster performance.

  19. Atlas alerts - include duration and date/time alert was closed

    currently alerts (sent to SLACK but probably other formats as well) reads this:

    Project: OS1

    Organization: SE Atlas

    CLOSED
    Host is down
    OS1-g-shard-18-05.bxxxxq.gcp.mongodb.net
    Created: 2020/06/11 03:44 BST

    Type: Mongos

    It would be helpful to also include:
    Closed: 2020/06/11 07:44 BST
    Duration: 1h 53m

    As the slack is usually set to each users timezone it creates a confusion when one is looking at how long issue lasted.
    This should be easy to implement and it would improve end user experience a lot.

    Same would be nice on Atlas 'closed alerts' tab - there seems to be no way currently to get…

  20. Show a graph of BANKED iops (AWS)

    Atlas monitoring is great... but it would be super helpful to see a graph of banked iops. (or an approximation of this)

    Suppose my iops limit is 100... and during the night my bank gets fully charged to 5.4MM.
    During the heavy loads on my server, let's say my iops jump to a steady 500. This means that I am drawing 400 units from my bank. I can do this for 3.75 hours until my bank is exhausted.

    It would be so helpful to see an iops bank balance drawing down during peak, recharging during off-peak... and thus getting insight…
