  1. Show node region on the metrics tab

    It would be really useful if the Atlas Metrics tab showed the node name and geographic location similar to how the Cluster Overview tab shows the node's region. In this use case, we have nodes located all over the world, so its useful to know where a node is located when reviewing it's metrics.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  5. New view with connection statistics

    It would be valuable to have a per-cluster view showing an overview of connections into each cluster including:


    • The number of connections per hours (opened, closed == churn)

    • Which IPs connections are coming from and how many from each over time

    • What drivers are being used for these connections and from which IPs

    • Which user is opening the connections

    This information can be very useful in understanding which applications/microservices are opening up the most connections, and helping to find old drivers etc.

  6. Splunk connector for Atlas

    We need a way to easily ingest logs into Splunk. It needs to be all logs - node and web portal activity. Ideally a Splunk connector would be provided but a stop-gap measure would be the ability to configure Atlas to write all logs to an Azure storage account.

    Lack of native log ingestion ability may be an Atlas deal killer for us.

  8. 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…

  9. Improvement: Add severity to alert definitions in Atlas MongoDB

    The alert payload only contains status field with 'open' or 'closed' value. No severity definition option is available.

  10. host down alert automatically silenced during atlas maintenances

    Our clusters keeps sending loads of alerts during maintenance times about host is down and similar - it's logical and I understand that those are rolling updates so the functionality of the cluster is not affected. However it's quite unfortunate that host are down for quite a while (20 - 30 mins sometimes) and as we don't want to create unnecessary noise from atlas monitoring we had to bump up our slack and pager duty notification to be fired 30+ minutes. This covers maintenance but out of maintenance this is ridiculously high and we would like to know there is…

  11. Disk Usage Breakdown

    When looking at the cluster page, I can see Disk Usage = 1.6GB, for example, but I don't know what the breakdown of that is. For instance, if I look at the same DB and add up the size of the collections themselves it's barely 1.5MB. So 1.6 Gig disk = 1.5 Meg data. I suspect this is oplog etc. but it is a pretty confusing potential red herring when diagnosing performance issues etc.

  12. Export metrics to Prometheus

    Currently there is only a community supported Prometheus integration (exporter) available which polls db.serverStatus() and doesn't include as much metrics as the Atlas UI/API provides. A similar integration as with New Relic and Datadog would help many customers that are using Prometheus and Grafana for monitoring.

  13. Profiler should only watch queries from certain users

    It would be useful to provide the profiler an "allowlist" and "denylist" of users to watch queries from. Essentially, it is only useful to receive alerts and profiler reports for queries made by actual applications. It is not useful to have alerts show up for one-off queries made by a DB admin using a DB explorer.

  14. 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.

  15. eviction metrics

    Please include eviction metrics as well in monitored metrics in atlas so that it will provide an overview how many evictions are happening in particular time and there by decide correct memory for the instance.

  16. 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.

  17. Atlas Cluster Labels in UI

    With the Atlas API, there is functionality to add labels to various clusters like EC2. It would be great if that was exposed through the Atlas UI as well.

  18. Atlas Activity feed should be searchable by cluster

    The Atlas activity feed is currently searchable by Type of event. It should have an option to search by cluster name to quickly narrow down any particular activities relating to a particular cluster

  19. Allow Atlas to send additional metrics to New Relic via integration

    This is a request to add some additional metrics to those that are currently sent from Atlas to New Relic when the integration is enabled.

    The specific metrics of interest here are:
    - Disk Space (%) Used (or Free)
    - DB Storage
    - Query Targeting

    Having pointed out the above metrics specifically, I would also say: the closer that the metrics sent to New Relic via the Atlas integration can resemble those available in the Atlas cluster Metrics page, the better.

  20. Alert for WiredTiger Cache

    Hi,

    Can you please create an alert for WiredTiger metrics, such as used cache?

    We had several cluster instances going over the 5% of used cached (dirty data) and would like to be notified when it happens.

    Regards,
    Sergei

    This is needed in order to determine whether
