  1. On demand snapshots in Ops Manager

    Allow the possibility of performing a snapshot on-demand.

    Usually the snapshot time ends too far away in time after configuration changes of the backup job (i.e: changing the block size). For testing purposes it would make sense to allow performing a snapshot on-demand to get it generated and proceed with further testing/tuning if required.

  2. MongoDB Agent (Automation Module): don't attempt to auth with `net.tls.clusterFile` / `net.tls.certificateKeyFile` and use Agent X.509 cert

    Problem Statement,
    What is the problem? MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) attempts to auth with net.tls.clusterFile / net.tls.certificateKeyFile X.509 certificate first, pretending it is a Replica Set member.

    Why is this a problem? MongoDB Server process logs are flooded by unnecessary noise from such MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) auth attempts pretending it is Replica Set member. MongoDB Server will always log Replica Set member auth certificate usage outside of internal MongoDB Server client (https://github.com/mongodb/mongo/blob/6212e50e73dd032b448a514fe6893c6490a28a9f/src/mongo/db/commands/authentication_commands.cpp#L294-L300),

    Example,
    {"t":{"$date":"2021-05-10T11:08:03.110+0000"},"s":"W", "c":"ACCESS", "id":20430, "ctx":"conn116","msg":"Client isn't a mongod or mongos, but is connecting with a certificate with cluster membership"}

    Proposal,
    * Don't attempt to auth…

  3. mongo push

    Why doesn't MongoDB provide a tool (integrated or standalone) to operate document migration across on-prem (sharded) clusters? Suggestion might be to officially support tools like "mongo push", which may cover situations of hardware changes, production servers migration, re-sharding.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. MongoDB Agent (Automation Module): don't attempt to auth with `__system` (SCRAM) user when `security.clusterAuthMode` is set to `x509`

    Problem Statement,
    What is the problem? MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) attempts to auth with __system (SCRAM) user when security.clusterAuthMode is set to x509.

    Why is this a problem? MongoDB Server process logs are flooded by unnecessary noise from such MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) failed auth attempts.

    Example,
    {"t":{"$date":"2021-05-10T11:08:02.115+0000"},"s":"I", "c":"ACCESS", "id":20249, "ctx":"conn115","msg":"Authentication failed","attr":{"mechanism":"SCRAM-SHA-1","principalName":"__system","authenticationDatabase":"local","client":"10.10.10.10:46765","result":"AuthenticationFailed: ###"}}

    Proposal,
    * Don't attempt to auth with __system (SCRAM) user when security.clusterAuthMode is set to x509 in MongoDB Server

  7. Incorrect Agent version Alert/Banner

    If someone upgrades from Ops Manager v4.2 -> v4.4 and then downgrades by reinstalling Ops Manager v4.2, there is no Alert or Banner that the Agent is incompatible.

    Attempts to modify deployments with this incompatible Agent displays "Initializing Automation for your Deployment" but never actually does anything. It is only after reviewing the Ops Manager logs that you see "Unrecognized field".

    It would be helpful if there was a validation check that displays an Alert or Banner that indicates that the version of the Agent is unknown/incompatible. Perhaps something similar to what is displayed after upgrading Ops Manager that will…

  8. 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.

  11. Add memory monitoring metrics

    Atlas -> please make buffers, cached, and MEM shared available under system memory metrics on Atlas for end users so we can calculate the criteria for auto scaling .

    Currently only Mongodb support can see these three metrics

  12. Backup Resource Usage via Api

    In Ops Manager, it is not possible to obtain some data from each snapshot via api, it is only available in ops manager interface. It is a good a idea to obtain from each snapshot the information of the backup resource usage. The api could return this information: "Store Type, Store Id Live, Compressed Bytes Dead, Compressed Bytes Compression Ratio, Last Groom, Last Track"

  13. Add ability to transition WiredTiger encryption-at-rest from local keyfile encryption (LKE) to KMIP

    If you are using local key file encryption and backing up your MongoDB deployment using Ops Manager, backups won't work correctly if you upgrade to MongoDB 4.2. The correct solution is to switch your encryption to KMIP. But if you try doing that, automation will get stuck!

  16. Kubernetes Operator - Prefix Annotations and Labels

    Labels and annotations added to Kubernetes resources by the MongoDB Enterprise Operator should include a prefix designating that it was added by MongoDB. The lack of a prefix suggests the field and values are private to the user.

    For example, the MongoDB statefulset and service selector should use a label prefixed with a MongoDB domain.

  17. Provide AWS CloudFormation template starter

    It would make things easier for our users if they had at least a starter/example AWS CloudFormation template to use for provisioning AWS resources required for an Ops Manager deployment.

  18. Benchmark backups in Ops Manager

    It would be helpful if, on the Snapshot overview page or on the Admin -> Backup page, there was the ability to benchmark the backup to help identify bottlenecks.

    Allow the user to select a deployment to test and then do a random sampling of data (ie: 100MB) to a temporary Snapshot location and then graph out the metrics for things like Memory/CPU/Disk IO on the source host, Database performance, Backup Agent performance, Network throughput, Blockstore/File System Store/S3 write performance, etc.

    Then create a report based on this benchmark that can be sent to technical support for recommendations.

    This will…

  19. EmptyDir as data-volume and log-volume

    spec:
    members: 1
    type: ReplicaSet
    version: "4.4.5"
    statefulSet:
    spec:
    template:
    spec:
    volumes:
    - name: data-volume
    emptyDir: {}
    - name: log-volume
    emptyDir: {}

    This type of override would be very helpful for automated testing pipelines - pipeline should spin up single mongodb instance, populates data and proceed with application testing. For that, we don't need persistent volumes, we need clear folder on each invocation.

    3. Metrics report for all the hosts at org and project level
    4. Backup failures report
    5. Alerts report (Example : List of alerts triggered in given timeframe)
