  1. Deploy Changes without restarting mongod/mongos instance immediately.

    Whenever we want to make changes, eg. set a new parameter or add new parameter in configuration (advance configuration options), after we save changes, review and deploy, automation immediately starts applying that change and does a rolling restart.
    We need flexibility in restart, means one should have an option to perform immediate rolling restart or defer it to later time. We may apply multiple changes at different times and set one preferred window to restart instance instead of doing multiple restarts.

  2. Improve the "host is down" alert by eliminating false positive alerts

    Currently, whenever an index build is kicked off on a replica set, it tends to trigger a "host is down" alert. Although this is benign and a false positive alert the on-call DBA has to wake up in the middle of a night when this alert pages us to make sure the host is NOT DOWN. When the monitoring agent tries to ping a node (where index build is running) and fails to communicate with it, it tends to think that the host is down and triggers this alert, although the host is up and running. When an index build…

  3. Allow Regexp, or other solution, to look for groups in "SAML Group Member Attribute" field

    The Ops Manager authentification process through SAML requires that the user's groups are specified in a dedicated SAML attribute sent by the IDP, so the user can connect to Ops Manager.

    For this need, our IDP can only provide a field that contains free text. This field can contain many information, and can include special characters. We can add the Ops Manager groups in this field, among the existing text information.

    However we need Ops Manager to parse this free field and get the groups information, which is not possible for now.

    That's why we would like the implementation of…

  4. Logging: attr.error field type conflicts

    Hey!

    We are using fluent-bit to push MongoDB logs to Elasticsearch. When there are already logs in the elastic index, where attr.error is an object, then it does not accept log lines in which this field is a string:

    “error”:{“type”:“mapperparsingexception”,“reason”:“object mapping for [attr.error] tried to parse field [error] as object, but found a concrete value”}

    There is log with string attr.error:

    {“t”:{"$date":“2022-05-13T15:16:31.203+00:00”},“s”:“I”, “c”:“CONNPOOL”, “id”:22572, “ctx”:“MirrorMaestro”,“msg”:“Dropping all pooled connections”,“attr”:{“hostAndPort”:“mongodb-1.mongodb-headless.mongodb.svc.cluster.local:27017”,“error”:“ShutdownInProgress: Pool for mongodb-1.mongodb-headless.mongodb.svc.cluster.local:27017 has expired.”}}

    There is log with object attr.error:

    {“t”:{"$date":“2022-05-13T15:20:56.857+00:00”},“s”:“I”, “c”:“REPL_HB”, “id”:23974, “ctx”:“ReplCoord-680”,“msg”:“Heartbeat failed after max retries”,“attr”:{“target”:“alerta-mongodb-arbiter-0.alerta-mongodb-arbiter-headless.monitoring. svc.cluster.local:27017”,“maxHeartbeatRetries”:2,“error”:{“code”:93,“codeName”:“InvalidReplicaSetConfig”,“errmsg”:“replica set IDs do not match, ours: 61ea35f29cfd494fef169571; remote node’s: 61eef8589d065c56e61d6e52”}}}…

  5. Rotate mongo logs

    When cluster is deployed, each mongo server start to generate a logfile "/var/log/mongodb-mms-automation/mongodb.log", we got an outage because it gets the disk full.
    It will be useful if we can specify a value to rotate and purge the log.

  6. rename action for backup daemon "delete daemon" to "deactivate daemon"

    when you press link "delete daemon" on Admin->Backup->Daemons page it "deletes" daemon from this page, but after mongodb-mms.service gets restarted, this daemon comes up again. this link does not delete daemon - it actually deactivate backup daemon. another part for deactivation of daemon is to modify settings for service mongodb-mms to start only mms application without daemon.

  7. trigger a queryable Backup Snapshot restore via Ops Manager public API

    We would like to periodically provision queryable snapshots on a programmatic basis (aka Ops Manager public API call) to easily get a consistent dump of sharded clusters in order to put those dumps in a "very safe location". We want to use this as part of a last resort backup strategy. The idea is that a dump is much easier to be restored by a "last resort restore app" compared to the http-downloaded plain data files.

    One other option to extract the contents of a sharded cluster would be to use "Long Running Queries" but this cannot be used along…

  8. Virus threat in MongoDB CLI

    I am facing an issue when downloading MongoDB CLI on my win10 computer. The Windows virus scanner says there is a "Trojan:Win32/Caynamer.A!ml" in the file I am trying to download and ends the download. Is this threat real?

  9. mongocli - changing server type

    There is a missing option to change server type via mongocli. You can list the server type for the project, but not change it.

    available option for list:

  10. Add Azure support for Cloud Manager

    Submitting on behalf of customer - Request to add Cloud Manager support for Azure servers (provisioning, installing an agent, making a custom hostname and doing DNS) and Azure blob for backups. Customer has shared they have had a great experience using Atlas. However due to business requirements, some application stay must on prem. Customer is partnered with Azure and unable to use Cloud Manager for on prem deployments as they cannot use AWS for servers and backups

  11. Include full date/time stamps to OpsManager's logfiles: mms0-startup.log and daemon-startup.log

    Currently records in mms0-startup.log and daemon-startup.log only have time stamp in the format: hour:min:sec,milliseconds.
    eg. 08:28:09,558 |-INFO in ch.qos.logback.classic.LoggerContext[default] - Could NOT find resource [logback-test.xml]

    It would be useful to include the full date/time stamps to each record as currently we can't say to which day do the records refer to.

  13. 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.

  14. Multiple webhook URLs

    At the moment only one webhook URL can be configured for one Ops Manager project.
    It would be nice if multiple URLs could be used to send the alert to different endpoints by using f.e. a delimiter character inside the config.
    Thanks and regards

  15. Ops Manager to be able to do archiving of Data to a different replica set than you Prod replica set.

    To be able to set up Archiving in Ops Manager so you would be able to keep a certain amount of data in Prod and move the rest of to an Archiving replica set.

  16. arm64 support for Kubernetes Operator

    Arm64 processors are getting more and more popular. Would be really nice to be able to run MongoDB Kubernetes Operator on a Raspberry Pi cluster.

    Otherwise, meanwhile would be nice to get documentation updated on how to produce arm64 images to still make it possible without having full CI infrastructure support.

  17. Include CPU usage in Sharded Cluster Monitoring Overview

    In the sharded cluster monitoring overview it would be useful to also have the option to display the Process CPU usage to quickly identify shards which have a higher CPU load. Other hardware metrics might be useful as well.

  20. Include "Fetch Time" in Profiler timings

    When we run the Profiler, the runtime of "select" type queries are dramatically understated. This is because the Profiler only counts the time of the "query", and doesn't include how long it took to "fetch" the result set.

    In one of our test cases, we "tuned" the query so it only shows as running 82 ms in the Profiler. However, when we actually run this same query in JavaScript, the runtime is 10 seconds. This is a very slow query which our end users experience many times a day.

    Is there a way to configure Profiler to be more realistic,…
