  1. Improvement of Restore Process in Ops Manager

    Presently Ops manager restore process removes all the data from the target MongoDb deployment and then restores from the user selected Snapshot and subsequently applies the PIT restore.

    It is noted that time taken by the restore operations increases as and when the DB size increases. The restore operation would also require the Applications to be shutdown and this would lead to increase in Application downtime during the restore process.

    In order to minimize the downtime we need to reduce the restore time.

    One suggestion to reduce the restore time is to perform automated restore from the latest available snapshots…

  3. Present MongoDB clients metadata on Ops Manager UI

    Before MongoDB version upgrades we should verify all drivers compatibility for the new version.

    It is sometimes difficult to track all of the drivers used connecting to the deployments. Currently it requires parsing of multiple mongos/mongod logs for client connections or internal code investigations.

    Suggestion

    It may be beneficial to collect and present clients statistics (version, type, IP) data on Ops Manager.

    Maybe this could be a feature that can be toggled on demand.

  4. System Statistics without Automation

    Currently it is required to enable automation on a cluster in order to monitor system level statistics such as CPU.

    As automation is sometimes not desired for a cluster, please add the ability to gather system level metrics when a cluster is monitored only.

  6. Ops Manager: add LDAP timeout options

    Our LDAP server is quite slow, so we sometimes get technical errors when trying to log in our Ops Manager instance.

    We would need add an option to set LDAP server response timeout on Ops Manager side. It could be mms.ldap.timeoutMs.

    (I'm refering to Ops Manager authentication, not to MongoDB deployement authentication)

  7. Ops Manager and attempts to stepDown

    When the majority commit point is not reached, Ops manager should refrain from any config change process like stepDown of a particular primary.

    Sometimes the number of attempts for stepDown can go upto 200 times and the duratio ncould be hours dependign on the data size.

    More details are present in the below ticket:

  9. list who is connected to a cluster

    Hello,

    On a sharded instance, I try to identify the connected physical people.
    It is not easy. I cannot identify my own connection. 😦

    Can we have a command to find out who is connected to the platform (excluding host2host connections, backup process, ...)?

    The closest command but not complete and friendly :
    use config
    DBQuery.shellBatchSize = 300
    db.system.sessions.aggregate( [ { $listSessions: { allUsers: true } },
    { $project: { _id: 0, "user":"$user.name" } } ,
    { $group : { _id: {"user": "$user" }, count: { $sum: 1 } } },

    ])

    Regards
    Jerome

  10. Performance Advisor should allow open each section indivirual

    Ops Manager 5.0.4.100.20211103T1316Z has now 3 sections in Performance Adviser.
    To see the results of one section I have to click on Recommendations.
    To see the results of the other section I have to go back (which triggers querying again) and click on the other recommendation.

    Currently it waists time and resource getting to the second recommendation. Why can't I just open it (e.g. in a separate browser tab)?

  11. Show time it took to complete a snapshot

    In order to better troubleshoot snapshot performance issues, or maintain an understanding of how snapshots are performing and whether one is approaching a threshold where they wont be able to keep up, its a good idea to expose how long a snapshot took in the View All Snapshots page. This would also aid in quickly identifying which snapshots are full vs incremental.

  12. Ops Manager: Test Failover

    The ability to Test Failover was added to Atlas https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/tutorial/test-failover.

    Please add this functionality to Ops Manager in order to facilitate failover testing. This is especially useful in multi-tenant Ops Manager setups.

  14. Automation agent to use custom response header when using load balancer

    When we implement HA solution OPS Manager relies on some specific response headers configured in load balancer (like X-Forwarded-For). This config may not be possible for some types of load balancer. and it creates extra dependencies on third party implementations.

    Not having this config properly causes alerts whenever one of the OPS Manager applications/hosts goes down.

    it would be nice let automation agent to use custom header instead, so it will send specific any info required which OPS Manager needs.

  15. Configure Ops Manager LDAP Auth via an API call

    Currently, there is no way to enable LDAP Auth for the Ops Manager Users via an API call.

    This essentially means that one would not be able to use LDAP and ci/cd simultaneously with Ops Manager.

    Mongodb enterprise support has confirmed that in the event of disaster recovery or a deployment of a new cluster, manual steps must be done to enable LDAP during a ci/cd deployment.

    It should not be expected to sign in and manually do anything in a web gui in an enterprise solution. It is simply not scalable.

  17. Consider supporting the installation of mongosh via Ops Manager/automation agent

    Today, it is possible to install MongoDB software (mongoimport/export, mongodump/restore, mongo, bi connector) from Ops Manager via the automation agent.

    Ideally, it will be possible to have the same experience for the new MongoDB Shell (mongosh), so that customers don't need to put in place a separate set of processes nd scripts to install it.

  18. Allow the use of symlinks within the Ops Manager directory

    Sometimes it would be great if we could move the conf, tmp, or logs directories to other filesystems and use symlinks so that Ops Manager doesn't have to worry about where the needed file physically are. Right now, Ops Manager refuses to start whenever this sort of redirection is done.

  19. Ability to migrate from Ops Manager to Cloud Manager

    Clearly users of Ops Manager use it because they have a requirement, keep MongoDB clusters within their own infrastructure.

    Well, we have two solutions for that Ops Manager and also Cloud Manager. I personally think if we have automation in the product to move from the Ops Manager control plane to the Cloud Manager control plane it would make it easier for users to take advantage of MongoDB's backup infrastructure and keep updates coming without the hassle of managing it all by themselves.
