  1. Automation - Monitor ulimit parameters for mongo processes

    MongoDB will abort if ulimit parameters are set too low. We should monitor parameters such as "open files" and add an alert for when the value approaches the ulimit configuration.

  2. Trigger replica set alerts for hidden secondaries

    We need to ability to trigger replica set alerts when a secondary that is hidden goes down.

    In this example an environment has 4 members, with one of them "hidden". We would like to be alerted even when the "hidden" secondary goes down.

    Currently alerts are only working for non-hidden members.

  3. Allow multiple authentication sources simultaneously

    Currently Ops Manager authentication supports either the Application Database, LDAP, or SAML, but these methods cannot be combined. Ideally we would like to move to LDAP, but we are stuck with the local authentication method as we depend on a local admin user which is used when first deploying and configuring the Ops Manager ecosystem. We also do not want to depend solely on the availability of the LDAP servers regarding an admin user. The MongoDB cluster deployments do support multiple authentication methods at the same time (we have local admin and monitoring accounts while users are authenticating via LDAP),…

  4. Ops Manager: more precise firewall configuration documentation

    Currently, it is not clear from the documentation what are the source hosts for each port to open. The diagram fills in a bit this imprecision, but it is not formal enough. Also, some ports need to be open only if certain features are needed (eg. download link for snapshots).

    This makes firewall configuration imprecise and experimental (or not as secure as it could be).

    Suggestion: each table of the the Ops Manager firewall configuration webpage should document those columns:
    - source component: client component(s)
    - target component: server component(s)
    - protocol: tcp/udp
    - port
    - feature: to specify if…

  5. Allow Ops manager to downgrade FCV

    Ops Manager UI (4.0 -4.4) does not allow downgrading of Feature Compatibility Version (FCV), once the FVC has been upgraded to a higher version. Ops Manager automatically
    removes the lower version from the supported FCVs once upgrade completes. But the cluster deployment allows downgrading one level using shell commands. This limitation makes it difficult when planning an upgrade as regression process are more difficult.
    We are in the process of upgrading the environment from 4.0 to 4.4 (which requires an intermediate upgrade to 4.2.). So the downgrade process is so difficult with Ops Manager UI.

  6. S3 Snapshot Store Speed Test

    It is often quite difficult to diagnose latency/bandwidth/generally slow S3 storage. It would be useful if Ops Manager could run a short test to show:

    1. How fast a single large object can be PUT and GET
    2. Measure parallel PUTs and GETs against test objects
    3. How much latency there is between Ops Manager and S3

  8. Drag and drop

    This is strictly cosmetic, but in Ops Mgr Deployment->Processes->deployment, it would be nice to be able to drag-and-drop the order of the servers. I believe it shows them in the order they were added to the replica set, the same as rs.status() or rs.config() would show, but for our deployments, we typically have 2 "main" systems, and then a third "DR" system. It would be great if I could always have our main systems as the first 2 systems, and then our "DR" system last, regardless of how they were added to the replica set. The order they were added…

  9. The Project Global Admin Agent logLevel settings are redundant and confusing

    As explained here:
    https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/manage-project-settings/index.html#admin-project-settings

    The Ops Manager global admins can override the logLevel setting on a project for Automation and Monitoring Agent modules using the webUI.

    This will cause the Agent to override the local config logLevel setting to what's set in the webUI.

    Please note that this global admin project setting is redundant as the logLevel of the Agent modules can be also set by using the "Edit custom configuration" window in the project agent settings page as explained here:
    https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/reference/mongodb-agent-settings/#configuration-file-settings-locations

  10. As a DBA using Ops Manager, when I make a cluster or project change (eg. enabling LDAP), I'd like to see a "dry run" of potential impact

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, when I make a cluster or project change (eg. enabling LDAP), I'd like to see a "dry run" of potential impact like a brief outage so that I will know that this change will have an impact on my end users or not. As of right now, when I make a change, it just happens to all projects/clusters immediately and may create a non-scheduled outage.

  11. I need another level of granularity with RBAC grouping so that only the users of database can see that data.

    As a Ops Manager Admin, I need another level of granularity with RBAC grouping so I can have organization, project and subproject permissions. I currently have hundreds of users in a project level and the permissions are too wide.

  14. I want control the timing of when that rollout happens on Ops Manager

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, when I rollout a cluster or project level change, I want control the timing of when that rollout happens so that I can notify the end users of when an change may occur. As of right now, those changes happen immediately all the entire cluster/project and may create a non-scheduled outage.

  15. Able to move a database from one MongoDB cluster to another MongoDB cluster

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, I want to be able to move a database from one MongoDB cluster to another MongoDB cluster so I can consolidate databases into a single cluster. As of right now there are no consolidation tools within Ops Manager.

  16. Option to encrypt mms.https.PEMKeyFilePassword in conf-mms.properties file

    Currently, credentialstool only offer encryption for username/password for the AppDB mongo.mongoUri.

    It would be great to also have the ability to encrypt the mms.https.PEMKeyFilePassword in conf-mms.properties file, so that is not clear text.
