  2. Update automation config through API without pushing entire config file

    For updating any Automation managed parameter, the only method through API is involving pushing the entire Automation config (which is a json file of hundreds lines) with modifications/addition all together.

    Even though I just want to update one single value.

    Is it a bit dangerous that there may be human mistake when modifying such a large json file. Wrong configuration may be push to the server.

    Graceful if there is a feature which allow user to partial update the configuration through API.

  3. Ops Manager API call for Host Mappings

    This feature request is for a new Group/Project API call for the management of the host mappings created in Ops Manager from monitoring information. Whether it be an endpoint for "Reset Duplicates" or full featured create/delete of individual host mappings, both will alleviate issues where overlapping mappings affect monitoring in Ops Manager.

    Note: The issue of overlapping mappings may occur when a mongod process has moved/changed IP addresses multiple times. With enough cycling (as seen in Kubernetes clusters with frequent pod restarts), eventually a previously mapped IP address may now be associated with a different mongod process.

  4. Allow enable/disable for agent alerts

    When we do server patching, we end up receiving agent down alerts for automation, monitoring and backup agents. Those create unnecessary noise and create a real risk of us missing a real alert. We should have ability to disable the agent alerts as part of server shutdown and enable the agent alerts are part of server startup.

  5. Using Ops Manager, I want to get an alert when a collection is a certain size or near no storage so that I can do an investigation

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, I want to get an alert when a collection is a certain size or near no storage so that I can do an investigation to see if there is abnormal data growth. As of right now, I can only monitor cluster data size.

  7. Restore a single database within a MongoDB cluster and not store the all the databases in a MongoDB

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, I want to restore a single database within a MongoDB cluster and not store the all the databases in a MongoDB cluster so that my restore only impacts a part of my cluster. As of right now, it restores the entire cluster with all database in it.

  8. Deploy MongoDB across different Kubernetes clusters

    MongoDB Operator can only deploy and manage MongoDB in a single Kubernetes cluster. However, for DR and global apps, it is important to deploy a single DataBase across multiple Kubernetes clusters to allow for DR or globally distributed apps.

  9. Only download to /mms/mongodb-releases/ those versions actually in use in a deployment

    /mms/mongodb-releases/ is continually updated with the most current minor release of each major version which can fill the partition.
    This request is for "Only download to /mms/mongodb-releases/ those versions actually in use in a deployment"
    eg if I am only using 4.2.20 in my actual deployments only download the most recent 4.2.x and not 3.6.x
    of course if I do decide to deploy a 3.6.x deployment this FR would need to automatically be bypassed and download my 3.6.x and the most recent 3.6.x.
    This request is similar to but not the same as another Feature Request:
    Do not download EOL

  10. Support rolling rebuild index

    In some particular situation indexes need to be rebuild.
    It would be nice to support a rolling index rebuild like Ops Manager does for the standard create index.

  11. Add ability to have systemLog redirected to stdout (just have to remove systemLog.destination and path)

    To be able to have MongoDB logs redirect to stdout and this having it into GKE CloudLogs, we should NOT configure a systemLog.destination nor a systemLog.path.

    In 0.6.0 release, systemLog.destination and path are hardcoded and cannot be nullable.

    see automationconfigbuilder.go at line 208:

    ...
    process.SetSystemLog(SystemLog{
    Destination: "file",
    Path: path.Join(DefaultAgentLogPath, "/mongodb.log"),
    })
    ...

  12. mongomirror compatibility with SRV strings

    It would be ideal if the mongomirror utility could accept SRV-based connection strings for the source and destination clusters. The inability to do this can cause pain for customers. For example, this does not work:

    --destination "mongodb+srv://mgo-aura-dgs-prdsrv-tk-pl-0.yrmiy.mongodb.net"

    So users are stuck doing this:

    --destination "atlas-nkaylx-shard-0/pl-0-ap-northeast-1.yrmiy.mongodb.net:1036,pl-0-ap-northeast-1.yrmiy.mongodb.net:1037,pl-0-ap-northeast-1.yrmiy.mongodb.net:1038"

    Two issues with that:
    1. It's painful looking up the host/port and atlas defined replica set name
    2. The destination info is unreadable by most humans. The service name (i.e. SRV record connstring) includes the name of the cluster that the customer defined, and not the random has that Atlas generates

  13. Configure MongoDB Automation Agent collecting stats on some collection to not trigger alerts

    We just had a support case about some alerts being raised on our cluster because the MongoDB Automation Agent collecting stats on some collection doing queries without index triggers "Scanned Objects / Returned" ratio has went over 1000.

    It would be really nice to at least not raise alerts when it's the mongodb automation agent that triggered it. Were monitoring our alerts a lot and these are false positive we can't do anything about it seems other than create all the indexes it needs, which might change over time. We have no guarantee of which index it needs.

    Another alternative…

  14. 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.

  15. index review before sharding with OPS Manager

    Currently, when you use OPS Manager to shard a collection, it automatically creates a foreground index that exactly matches the sharding key, when such index doesn't exist. When the sharding key column(s) is(are)already prefixing an existing index, it's not sufficent.
    This is dangerous in Live environments because the whole database is blocked for a long time (sharded collections are usually big collections).
    So, several features could exist :
    - before continuing with sharding, OPS Manager warns that it needs to create this foreground index first. You can stop if you don't agree (and create this index by yourself first).
    -…

  16. avoid generating alert with error message if one oplog node in replicaset got rebooted.

    currently if one of the node in appdb/oplogdb goes down for any reasons (for example, linux patch rebooting the node), ops manager generates alert

    "Ops Manager was unable to connect to this database and run the ping command. The database could be down, unreachable, or running with authencation and Ops Manager does not have adequate permissions."

    there are still 2 other running nodes in replicaset. so this alert is misleading and generates false alarms.

  17. Add compound indexes support for Ops Manager managed Sharding

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager Automation does not take into account compound indexes (https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/index-compound/), e.g. if we have { a: 1, b: 1 } index already exist Ops Manager will still create { a: 1 } index for a Shard Key.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) This creates unnecessary indexes with performance impact on the MongoDB Server process.

  18. S3 Snapshot Store Speed Test

    It is often quite difficult to diagnose latency/bandwidth/generally slow S3 storage. It would be useful if Ops Manager could run a short test to show:

    1. How fast a single large object can be PUT and GET
    2. Measure parallel PUTs and GETs against test objects
    3. How much latency there is between Ops Manager and S3

  19. Reset duplicates button for Ops Manager Admin System overview page

    Sometimes customer want to clean up the System Overview page and/or the application db from because:
    - They dismissed one or more Ops Manager server running Application servers or backup daemon components
    - Their hostnames / domains have changed over the time
    - Their hostnames have changed from lowercase to capital letters or vice versa because upgrading Ops Manager brought a JVM providing different values for getHostname() (this happens often in Windows environment).

    It would be nice to have a button or at least an API call similar to the project reset duplicates that forces Ops Manager to refresh the…

  20. Option to clear deleted alerts

    Deleted alert definitions pile up in the "deleted alerts" tab of Ops Manager.

    This information may be useful for auditing purpose, but in the long run, the number of deleted alerts may grow too large. Especially in our use case, where alert configurations are deployed through a script that deletes/recreate all alerts.

    Feature suggestion: add an action to clear all deleted alerts (or better: clear all deleted alerts older than N days).
