  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  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. 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.

  6. Export profiler slow queries via Datadog integration

    The "profiler" tab in Atlas is very nice -- it gives a really nice over-all view of slow queries, with the ability to drill down into the individual calls.

    However, I don't check this page every day, and so it is sometimes hard to find out when we actually do have slow queries or commands pop up on it if it is not affecting our cluster.

    We use datadog as the central point for all of our monitoring. We have the Atlas <--> Datadog integration set up, which exports a number of useful stats. It would be very nice for…

  7. Display Total Cluster Data Size in Atlas UI

    Atlas doesn't display the total data size of the databases hosted on the sharded cluster. This feature was available in Opsmanager and will be very helpful for the DBA's and the product development teams to glance at the data size of the cluster.

    Attached the screenshot for example.

    Nice to have or display the size of each database and also display the historical datasize metric for each database in a sharded cluster.

  8. Metric on TTLDeleted documents

    Hi,
    We (Indeed, inc.) are one of your larger customers with more than $2M spend on Atlas in a year. We need a metric on number of TTL Deleted documents per second for an Atlas Cluster. We have similar metric on our standard mongodb plugin in Datadog and this is extremely useful to all our Product Teams because most of our clusters have TTL.
    Thanks.

  11. Uptime report for Atlas cluster

  12. Display the Atlas-generated replica-set name in the cluster Dashboard

    This is an easy one, and it'll help a lot.

    Inconvenience:

    In the past, every time I created a cluster, the name of the replica-set was in line with the name of the cluster:
    e.g.:
    Cluster Name: asteroids-tracking
    Replicaset Name: asteroids-tracking-shard-0

    Now when I create a cluster, the name of the replica-set is a random set of characters prefixed by "atlas-"
    e.g.:
    Cluster Name: asteroids-tracking
    Replicaset Name: atlas-[randomChars]-shard-0

    This makes it unnecessarily difficult to find (in the Atlas Organization) the cluster referred to when I receive text message alerts. Mainly when you are in charge of so many clusters.
    Additionally,…

  14. 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.

  15. Manually replace / restart virtual machine

    Allow to replace / restart the underlying virtual machine of a node.

    Sometimes this is all that is needed to get a cluster out of an unhealthy state. Currently, only support seem to be able to do this.

  16. Disk throughput in monitoring

    Currently we have disk IOPS in monitoring (both read and write).
    One of the metrics that play a role to decide whether to have a provisioned disk or not, at least with AWS hosting, is the disk bandwidth.
    For instance with a large enough disk, like 2000GB, I have max 250MB/s bandwidth with an unprovisioned (gp2) disk (the maximum), but could go to 500MB/s with a provisioned (io1) disk of that size.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. Atlas metrics granularity after 48 hours

    For metrics older than 48 hours, the data is presented in 1-hour intervals. This level of granularity is often too coarse for a thorough examination of past events and trends. Such a broad view can obscure smaller yet significant details critical for understanding and resolving performance issues that occurred in the past.

    Suggested Improvement:

    having a smaller granularity value for historical metrics beyond the 48-hour timeframe. Providing data in smaller intervals would greatly enhance our ability to conduct in-depth analyses and diagnose past performance issues accurately. This would be particularly beneficial for conducting detailed investigations of historical data and identifying…
