  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Profiler window should auto zoom to sampling period and show sampling period range

    Atlas documentation states that the Query Profiler shows up to 10,000 queries within the past 24 hours:  https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/tutorial/profile-database/index.html#data-display-limitations

    However, it is confusing to see that the Profiler cannot show more than a couple hours of data, likely because it is hitting the 10,000 entry limit.

    The plot still shows a view showing 24 hours of time, but only the past couple hours have data plotted, misleadingly indicating that there are no slow queries before a couple hours ago – here's an example: https://p-37FYgJ.b1.n0.cdn.getcloudapp.com/items/JruWZDYK/Image%202020-03-25%20at%2010.49.32%20AM.png?v=7f79362e62c8d15a9f91f8ba4d5aecaf

    Atlas should make the sampling time window clear in the Query Profiler graph so that we…

  4. Atlas Alert for Remaining Credits

    MongoDB will email Atlas customer when the prepaid Atlas credit is estimated to be exhausted within 30 days.

    However, it would be good to have an alert for this in Atlas, e.g.

    Alert if the remaining prepaid amount is lower than ... <an amount>

  5. metrics

    There might already be a way to do this, but I cannot find it. Please provide a way to combine "all primary" metrics into a single chart.

    I love your metrics, but I hate that when primary moves from one server to another I get "data gaps" in my graphs. So then it becomes exceedingly difficult to look at temporal variations... requiring splicing together multiple segments from 2 or 3 different graphs.

    I have attached a picture of what I am talking about. You can see that primary moved over for a few days so I get a graph with…

  6. Make RSS feed entries more consistent

    We would like to consume your status RSS feed to help us programmatically warn our internal groups when you have issues in a given region. One problem that we see with this is that the messages that we have seen posted are pretty inconsistent with how they specify regions. Examples: Oregon (us-west-2), AWS EU-WEST-2, AWS Sao Paulo. It would be very helpful to us, and probably your other customers as well, if the messages were more consistent in how they reference AWS regions.

  7. Add horizontal scroll bar to metrics tab

    I can't see metrics for all of my nodes while in the metrics tabs unless I make the window very large. It would be much easier to analyze the health of my cluster if I could review metrics for all the nodes by scrolling horizontally, rather than having to switch between a grouping of nodes.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Add replica set name to cluster info main page

    It would be nice to get quick access to the name of the replica set from the cluster overview page.

  13. Add 1 second granularity to ATLAS metrics

    At present the finest granularity of ATLAS metrics is 1 minute ,as the metrics are averaged by 1 minute , this would not provide info on spikes lasting less than few seconds
    reducing the granularity to 1 second would give more insight

  14. Show max IOPS line on IOPS graphs

    When monitoring disk IOPS, it isn't immediately clear when we are limited on IOPS. Having a red limit line on the IOPS chart on the metrics tab would help here.

  15. 3rd Party Hooks

    Within Atlas today, we have a number of channel options to send alerts (Ex. OpsGenie, Slack, VictorOps).

    I would like to see a hook integration provided by Atlas so any tool can recieve alerts from their cluster. Ex. I can recieve my cluster alert in Microsoft Teams.

    3rd party hooks can increase the stickiness of Atlas and improve freedoms for teams and their existing toolsets.

  16. Data Transfer Limit

    since as documented there are limitation on network traffic in M0/M2/M5 instances, it is mandatory to have a metrics/alerts (also for free ones) to monitor this value in a 7d sliding window

  17. Improve "Host has index suggestions"" alert by including the hostname

    The "Host has index suggestions" alert notification does not contain any reference to the host/deployment that triggered it making it hard to figure out where it came from. A hostname reference would be very helpful.

  18. Allow custom date range to be submitted in Query Profiler

    Currently the Query Profiler can plot queries that were logged up to 24 hours in the past.

    It would be helpful to allow for visualization of a custom date range older than 24 hours ago, rather than only queries logged within the past 24 hours. This could help with RCAs for events that occurred more than 1 day ago, and also help teams who collaborate to investigate queries over a time period longer than 1 day.

  19. 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?

  20. 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…
