  1. Take too much time preloading database statistics

    As you can see, My MongoDB instance has over 10K databases and over 400K collections, Every time I connect to it with Compass, I have to wait for more than one minute before Compass is ready to use. This 'collecting information process' is unnecessary because I don't care how many collections are there, all I want is jump into one of these databases and start my work.

    So I would be appreciated if there is an option to skip this 'preloading' process.

  2. Don't search for entire document set of a collection on a new tab by default

    When I want to search for documents of a collection I select the collection on the left pane and then a new tab is opened, that shows information as seen in picture big-collection.png.

    However, the problem with this default configuration is that is searches for the entire document set to display the information Displaying documents 1-20 of 1183373. The executed query is:

    {code}
    {
    "appName": "MongoDB Compass",
    "command": {
    "aggregate": "progress",
    "pipeline": [
    {
    "$match": {}
    },
    {
    "$skip": 0
    },
    {
    "$group": {
    "id": 1,
    "n": {
    "$sum": 1
    }
    }
    }
    ],
    "hint": "
    id_",…

  3. Historical log of slow operations

    Compass's "slowest operations" feature in the performance tab has been very helpful for debugging collection scans due to missing indexes.

    The only problem is that I have to sit there and watch it to try and "catch" the slow operations with a click before they disappear. I'm running many databases on this server, and the server is talked to by many web servers running various apps and tools, and my debugging process usually starts with noticing spikes in the Operation Execution Time (from the free monitoring page).

    There are obviously other ways to log slow operations, but I've found Compass…

  4. View sub collections as dropdowns or directories and adding a search feature for collections

    I think MongoDB Compass is an incredibly powerful software using which one can do easy queries and manipulations to data. I also like the UI - its clutter free and easy to use.

    I want to request an additional feature in Compass which isn’t currently there:

    Viewing sub collections as dropdowns or directories(Tree structure)

    Generally, sub collections are namespaced using a period(.) and they make sense since the data becomes easy to organise and work with.

    Say we have nx.ny.na.nb…(n - nodes, x y a and b are integers) type collections

    1. If only a single final collection exists under a…
