  1. Support for Connecting Cloud Manager to MongoDB Docker Containers

    I am not able to find a way to connect cloud manager to on prem docker containers running MongoDB. Maybe i've missed something and this feature already exists?

  2. Pin image tags in Enterprise Kubernetes Operator values file

    Should be able to pin tags for images like mongodb-enterprise-appdb in https://github.com/mongodb/mongodb-enterprise-kubernetes/blob/master/helm_chart/values.yaml

    Currently, we are forced to use the latest tag, which has caused issues and broke disaster recovery for our project.

    If we would have been able to use an older tag of the image, we could have recovered fast. since we were forced to use the latest tag, it took several days to recover. This does not seem acceptable for an enterprise software.

  4. Ability to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps for configured Ops Manager Alerts

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager Alerts should have possibility to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps to configured destinations. SNMPv3 provides better authentication, data encryption and message integrity in comparison to SNMPv2c protocol.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) It is mandatory to use SNMPv3 in many enterprise deployments as SNMPv2c does plaintext community string authentication without encryption (SNMPv3 does MD5/SHA1 hashing for passwords and provides encryption for SNMP data).

  5. Support for .xlsx via mongoimport

    mongoimport allows for import of formats such as JSON,CSV or TSV.While the user can convert their excel file to .csv and import,I am thinking, though .csv maybe a more flexiable data format for data exchange than .xlsx; their maybe more flat files in .xlsx format.Allowing mongoimport to accept these formats and possibly convert it to .csv and import the data into a collection may save the users of mongoDB an additional step when working with those files.

  6. Add 4.4 tool to PATH

    Since MongoDB 4.4 the tools are located in another folder that is not included in the automation agent bash profile:

    [root@n1 mongodb-mms-automation]# cat /etc/profile.d/mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh
    export PATH=/var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin:${PATH}

    Would be nice to have also the mongo tools in the path

  7. Automation should handle multiple hostname aliases for each server

    In order to separate replication, client and administrative traffic, servers may have multiple network interfaces using different IP and hostname aliases associated with them.

    According to the requirements described on https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/provisioning-prep/#server-networking-access Automation currently can use only the server hostname defined as hostname -f and cannot use any of the other aliases matching to other IP addresses for the other machine host aliases.

    Please add some way to customize which host alias Automation should use as a configuration parameter for the Agent.

  8. Never delete the most recent backup snapshot

    When backup snapshots cannot be completed as scheduled, and they are behind, Ops Manager really should NEVER delete the most recent snapshot. For example, if the snapshot retention policy is to take a backup every 24 hours and keep daily backups for 2 days, and weekly backups for 2 weeks, a new snapshot should not automatically expire after 2 days. If backups are not completing for some reason, and it goes 2 days without a successful new snapshot, the most recent daily backups are deleted and we are left with the most recent weekly backup instead. There really should never…

  9. Improve backup job status in Backup jobs summary table

    When checking the backup job details for a 4.2 deployment, this is always reporting to be performing a "WT Checkpoint" even though it is not exactly generating a snapshot at that point in time.

    The request is to enhance the reporting for this summary table in order to get further details on what the Backup Module is doing at that precise point in time. If it is awaiting for the instruction to execute a snapshot, in the process of transferring blocks, etc.

  10. Use word, not letter to define log levels in Ops Manager

    The following log messages are "info" level messages which can be found in the kubernetes logs from the ops-manager-db pods:

    ```sh

  11. Rewrite Informational Message "E11000 duplicate key error collection"

    Rewrite the informational AppDB log message so that monitoring tools such as Dynatrace and Splunk does not consider this message as an error message.

  12. Notify about SSL/TLS Certificate Expiration Date & Time to warn customers about potential impact on their deployment availability

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Customers run into SSL/TLS Certificate Expiration issues (where SSL/TLS certificate has expired) on their Ops Manager and MongoDB Server environments and they do not get any early notifications from Ops Manager about SSL/TLS Certificate Expiration.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Customers who use Ops Manager to manage/monitor their MongoDB Server deployments are running into situation where their configured SSL/TLS Certificates are expired, and thus have potential downtime for their applications.

  13. Repilca Set Election - Even Number of Nodes

    WE have a 4 node replica set and when we removed 2 of the nodes at one time the election process didn't know how to elect a new primary. We would like the election process to accommodate an even number of replica set nodes.

  14. GUI for Queryable Snapshots

    It would be good to have a GUI created for the queryable snapshot interface so less experienced users, that may not have any mongod experience, can successfully restore a collection/document without additional training.

    Ideally, the feature allows for the creation of some subset of documents using a query building tool (even collection level would be acceptable) that can then be pushed to a target environment automatically or pushed to a mongodump file that can be used as a restore tool later. Their primary concern is just to ensure that individuals without direct mongod experience or server access can generate a…

  15. Make it possible to prevent incessant Automation log messages about unexpected field in process memory metrics map

    My automation manager posts an info message about unexpected fields in process memory metrics map every minute. It's polluting my logs. I would like a way to fix the underlying problem or, if it cannot be fixed, then don't tell me about it in the logs.

    Here are some examples:
    mongodb-data-prod-vm2.cloud.ca 2020-08-05 - 01:10:47 PM info runtimestatsPrinter Unexpected field in process memory metrics map: thp_enabled. Skipping

    mongodb-data-prod-vm2.cloud.ca 2020-08-05 - 01:10:47 PM info runtimestatsPrinter Unexpected field in process memory metrics map: speculationstorebypass. Skipping

  16. Apply Project Maintenance Windows to Global Alerts

    Apply Project Maintenance Windows to Global Alerts

    Make the existing Project-level maintenance windows also silence Global alerts associated with the Project.

    We have many projects that share the Global Alerts and do not want to turn off all global alerts as we still need that alerting for the projects that are not being worked on.

    In combination with the existing API for Project Maintenance Windows, this really allows full control.

  17. Add collection level statistics to the measurements API

    [Get Database Measurements](https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/v4.2/reference/api/measures/get-database-measurements/) currently provides information from dbStats.

    Adding collection level statistics would be useful for gathering information via the API on a regular basis to measure growth of each collection and other metrics. Data Explorer functionality is not available via the API.

  18. Add ability to merge metrics when host renamed

    If a host is renamed and a new mapping is made with a unique ID, there is no way to merge the metrics to view the, historically.

    Adding the ability to merge metrics from previous hosts (when the user is sure the hosts are equivalent) would allow history to be viewed and maintained.

  20. Binaries should be provided via Docker images

    To implement this in a Kubernetes native way for offline deployments, the binaries should be provided as Docker images and distributed through the Docker repositories that are already present in the k8s environment.

    Option 1 (intermediate): Allow Mount of Docker images in the MongoDBOpsManager resource for the path defined in automation.versions.directory. This would allow us to pre-package the binaries needed and bring up the OpsManager in a kubernetes native way. Everything else (e.g. agent downloading the tgz) would stay the same and still be the "OpsManger-way".

    Option 2 (long term): The MongoDB TGZ package is provided as Docker image by…
