  1. Publish statistics in Atlas to analyze what is filling oplog

    It would be very useful to be able to see metrics/statistics about the contents of oplog. There are open-source tools like oplog analyzer (https://github.com/mhelmstetter/oplog-analyzer) that can be used, but it's a hassle to have to install it and run it in the same datacenter where the database is running (for performance).

    The statistics I'm most interested is what collections have most oplog documents, what kind of operations they have been and what is the total size that each collection currently utilizes from the oplog. This will help improving code to use less oplog.

  3. Ability to search for filter conditions in Atlas Alert builder

    It would be helpful to be able to search for a trigger condition in the Alert builder when creating/editing an alert.

    Currently, you need to scroll to find specific conditions, but the list is long so it can take some time to find the particular one needed.

  4. 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.

  5. Change Atlas Metric Timeline Annotations Color

    Filing this on behalf of customers that are having a hard time telling orange and brown apart in Atlas metric timeline annotations (node become secondary, node becomes primary)

  6. Add a monitoring that always shows the current primary

    When there's an election and the primary changes, it's hard to get a good view on how does the primary functions in a macro fashion.
    Please add a monitoring column (or an equivalent solution) that can show the monitoring information for the primary at the time, so I could look at the past month or so, and see how does the primary performed, even if it was a different server every time.

    This will make it much easier to understand various actions we take like changing indexes, improving queries, upgrading the database version, upgrading the driver, etc.

  7. Show in the UI when an index build is ongoing, and when it completes

    When indexes are built from an application or a mongorestore there's no way to see if it's ongoing in the UI.

    There should be an indication in the "Real-time" tab saying that an index on collection X is in progress. This would explain why performance is currently impacted.

    It would be good to see index start and end marked on the "Metrics" visualizations so we can see the impact of index builds on IOPS, CPU, memory etc. This could help understand if we need to upscale the cluster.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Allow NewRelic integration to use EU APIs instead of default US APIs for clusters in EU region

    The NewRelic integration in MongoDB is using the default NewRelic API that is in non-EU region. There is a separate API endpoint for EU region, that is described at https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/using-new-relic/welcome-new-relic/get-started/introduction-eu-region-data-center#.

    This is causing 'newRelicLicenseKey' failed to authenticate error for the MongoDB Atlas cluster setup in EU region.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Alerts change from time based pattern to include actual alert in subject

    So far we are receiving atlas alerts in time based manner which are difficult to undersatnd/analyze just by looking at email subject.

    We are expecting a model in which we want to Separate alerts for each instance instead of combining alerts on a single time frame and Changing email alert subject to include alert description. This will allows us to understand the alert by looking at email subject , combine/view all alerts in email client (for example outlook) , write some rules on them and analyze the alert timing pattern by sorting and group by alert description.

    For example,

    Present…
