  1. Loadbalance functionality for Ops Manager

    When Ops Manager is under heavy load from many active database services, f.e. to handle backup snapshots, the recommendation from the case support portal is to use a loadbalancer in front of Ops Manager.
    It would be great, if Ops Manager could have this as an integrated functionality to forward connections from agents to additional Ops Manager instances.
    Background: Our nTSE did confirm, that we could set a different Ops Manager URL in the agent config, but the transferred data from this agent is still sent to the initially configured Ops Manager instance.

  2. 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,…

  3. Profiler and Performance Advisor without Automation

    Currently it is required to enable automation on a cluster in order use the Profiler/Performance Advisor.

    https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/profile-database/

    https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/performance-advisor/

    As automation is sometimes not desired for a cluster, please add the ability to Profile Databases and use Performance Advisor when a cluster is monitored only.

  5. Do not start backups for Sharded clusters unless all requirements are met

    With FCV > 4.2, Backups requires the backup module to be activated on at least one member per shard for sharded clusters but it also doesn't stop one from starting backups if the backup module is activated only on one member of the entire sharded cluster, for example, activating the backup module on a single member of the config server replica set and not on any member of the shards allow for one to start backups.

    Currently, if backups are enabled and at least one of the Replica sets in the Cluster has a backup module, backups will start for…

  6. 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…

  7. Ops Manager global actions (mongocli ops-manager admin)

    Add cli commands in global scope of Ops Manager to allow for scripting actions on all projects (e.g. update all agents after an upgrade of Ops Manager):
    - CRUD projects (prio on get projects to allow for looping over them)
    - CRUD orgs
    - CRUD users
    - global config managemant
    - global alert management

  8. Alerts: Webhook integration authentication with basic auth

    In secure environments, it is required that webhook endpoints are secured with basic authentication at a minimum. Currently, Webhook alerts only provides an HMAC-SHA-1 signature.

  9. 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.

  10. Combine Support Portal Mailing Lists when opening cases

    Combine different Mailing Lists in the Support Portal, when opening a case. Right now you can use only one Mailing List per case. When opening cases it would be good to choose to send updates to 2 or more mailing lists depending on the audience required. So rather than creating a new mailing list for every possible combination of recipients, choosing more than one mailing list per case, would enable the right people to get updates and reduce the noise for others. E.g. Operations + Project A Mailing list if it only concerns that one project, and Operations + Project…

  13. modify mongoDB DB user in ATLAS, OPS Manager , or Cloud Manager

    It would be really nice if mongocli could be used to modify user accounts. Add new roles, or change the password. Currently mongocli can add, list , delete project DB user accounts. It would be nice for modify, since there is a need for password rotation, and mongocli see so fit that bill quite nicely.

    This is for OPS Manager, but could be for OPS , Cloud or Atlas..

  14. Increase maximum retention periof of backups

    Currently OpsManager's maximum retention period for backups is 84 months (7 years). We have the requirement to keep 10 years of backups, hence adding some values (96, 108, 120, 132, 144) in the "Store monthly snapshots for... months" in the backup schedule would be helpful. Another option might be to allow custom values (I guess this is the purpose of https://feedback.mongodb.com/forums/924355-ops-tools/suggestions/39441955-make-snapshot-retention-policy-more-customisable)

  18. 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…

  19. 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)

  20. 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.
