  1. Collect hardware metrics even if there's no managed mongo process

    Collect hardware metrics even if there's no managed mongo process

    Have Automation Agent collect hardware metrics on unmanaged mongo hosts.

    Automation agents doesn't collect hardware metrics unless there's a managed mongo process. This means we can't provide centralized system monitoring for a heterogeneous environment, where some clusters are running on their own and others are under automation, or on any non-managed host.

  2. Send alert when RECOVERING node has failed due to being too stale to sync from any available node

    Ops Manager users with hundreds or even thousands of replica set members (hosts/nodes) need an alert that indicates a nodes is in RECOVERING state and is too far behind the oplog to recover without manual intervention. This information is present in the mongod log file. However, Ops Manager should generate a separate alert for this unique and important state. Without this alert, it is not immediately clear when a user needs take action to bring a replica set back to a healthy state.

  4. Encrypt Password LDAP Query User

    The LDAP Query user's password appears in plain text in mongod.config file. The ability to mask its password in automation config file using credentialstool would mitigate a security risk.

  5. KMIP Server Host

    Ability to enter multiple values for "KMIP Server Host" under KMIP Server Configuration in the Backup Configuration page of the Ops Manager Config. This would be similar to entering multiple values for 'kmipServerName' for deployments. This would help in terms of HA for KMIP; use a secondary KMIP server if the primary were to be unavailable.

  6. Changes to Backup Configuration

    Ability for changes in a project's Backup Configuration page to take effect without having to terminate and restart backups. Terminating backups removes all existing backups thus exposing an organization to risk. Backups can be stopped and restarted for the changes to take effect but not completely terminate them. This would help when changes are needed into terms of backup daemons, blockstores, types of blockstores, etc.

  8. mongocli feature request: whitelist with timeout on current ip to allow temporary mongoshell access from temporary locations

    Please add a timeout parameter to the mongocli whitelist command.
    Presently, we have to login via web browser to enable temporary mongoshell access from temporary locations.

  9. MongoDB CR should support topologySpreadConstraints

    As PodAntiAffinity does not really give enough flexibility in achieving High Availability and enforcing distribution across nodes, it should be possible to add topologySpreadConstraints to the podSpec (of both ShardedCluster and other deployment types). As of now topologySpreadConstraints are ignored by the Operator.

  11. move/copy pagination buttons on top of log screen

    when you browse agent logs( automation/monitoring/backup), the size of records is different because some records can take more than 1 line.
    as a result pagination buttons < and > at the bottom of the screen have different location on every page -so it's hard and frustrating to find new location of buttons - particularly when you need go through 10-50 pages...

    but the top of the page is always is on the same place.
    it would be nice to implement one of 3 options :
    1. add keyboard shortcut to go forth and back between pages
    2. duplicate pagination buttons…

  12. Allow assignment of Backup Resources before starting Backup Job

    For very large clusters, ideally backup resources should be assignable before the backup begins. For each shard and config server, assignment of the following would assist in scaling Ops Manager backups.


    • Snapshot Store

    • Oplog Store

    • Backup Daemon (if using FCV <= 4.0)

    Starting the backup could trigger an email to the Backup Administrator who could then assign these resources on the Admin page.

  14. Ability to customize subject line for System & Global Alerts

    Currently there's no way to customize the subject line of either a system or global alert. The subject line only has the project name & time. It doesn't even say why the alert was generated until the email alert is opened. Having the ability to modify the subject line, even if it's to certain predefined fields such as alert condition for example would be helpful in addressing alerts in an efficient and effective manner.

  15. Filesystem Store: Use hardlinks for unchanged files

    When utilizing the Filesystem Store, often files do not change between snapshots. In order to significantly save on space, the Backup Daemon could create hardlinks for the files in subsequent snapshots instead of extra copies of the file.

  16. Possibility to send an alert over all/selected alert channels, if all/selected alerts can't be delivered

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Send an alert over all/selected alert channels, if all/selected alerts can't be delivered by Ops Manager's Application Server.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) We can miss an alert (or multiple alerts) from Ops Manager's Application Server if configured alert channel become unavailable since all Ops Manager Alerts are working in fire-and-forget style without any checks/mechanisms to see if the alert was delivered (some alert types can't have that guarantee at all (e.g. SNMP Alert Traps)).

  17. Automated restores between multiple Ops Manager deployments

    Ability to utilize API and/or UI to restore a snapshot downloaded from one Ops Manager deployment to a separate distinct Ops Manager deployment.

    Some environments require separation of Production and Staging systems, including Ops Manager deployments. It is desirable to use Production data in some testing scenarios. Currently the data has to be loaded or restore manually.

  18. Remote Address and Remote Port information shold be provided as part of the Public API global events for all DATA_EXPLORER_CRUD

    When requesting Audit events using the Public API Global events,
    not all events provide the Remote Address and Remote Port.

    some commands like "find" does present the Remote Port/IP, but others such as updateDocument, insertDocument and deleteDocument do not.

    the info is there so why some events present it and some don't?

    is it possible to formulate a unify base fields for all events that will include the Remote Address, Remote Port?

    Thanks

  19. Admin -> organizations pagination of list

    On Ops Manager up to 4.4.1 the Admin -> Organizations page shows only 100 organizations and there is no support for paginating the results.

    Please improve the page by allowing the user to see more than 100 organizations.

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager's Org ID/Org Name/Project Name attributes needs to be added to Project (GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/alerts) / Global (GET /globalAlerts) Alerts API calls and Alert Webhooks.

(the pain) Ops Manager's Org ID/Org Name/Project Name attributes are currently missed in Project (GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/alerts) / Global (GET /globalAlerts) Alerts API calls and Alert Webhooks. Operator who watch Monitoring System (the one that receive Ops Manager Alerts) needs to see Ops Manager's Organization ID/Organization Name/Project Name in order to quickly understand to…
