  1. 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.

    We are going to start POC in July to figure this out. Our goal is to form a single cluster that can fallback between different K8S clusters.

  2. Add support for virtualization volume management in Ops Manager Backup snapshots and restores.

    Streaming snapshots during a restore from a blockstore out to the MongoDB Agent cases the RTO (recovery time objective) to grow linearly with the compressed datasize in the largest shard/RS of the snapshot. The RTO of an Ops Manager restore could be very significantly improved by leveraging volume management infrastructure (such as from VMWare) to restore previously acquired snapshots as virtual filesystems (volumes).

  3. Integration with Microsoft Teams

    Add third-party service integration for Microsoft Teams, as we do for Slack.
    Most likely the following can be leveraged to achieve the integration: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/teams-proactive-messaging

  5. SNMP traps for `AUTOMATION_AGENT_DOWN`, `MONITORING_AGENT_DOWN`, `BACKUP_AGENT_DOWN` alert types does not contain hostname information

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? SNMP traps for AUTOMATION_AGENT_DOWN, MONITORING_AGENT_DOWN, BACKUP_AGENT_DOWN alert types does not contain hostname information in .1.3.6.1.4.1.41138.1.1.1.4 (.iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.mms.server.serverMIBObjects.mmsAlertObject.mmsAlertHostAndPort) OID.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) User is blocked to act quickly on the alert and identify the host where Ops Manager's Automation/Monitoring/Backup Agent is in DOWN state. Missing <HOSTNAME>:<PORT> information at .1.3.6.1.4.1.41138.1.1.1.4 SNMP OID does not allow user to map AUTOMATION_AGENT_DOWN, MONITORING_AGENT_DOWN, BACKUP_AGENT_DOWN alert types into a particular hostname.

  6. Add Ops Manager's Org ID/Name into all SNMP Alert Traps

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager's Org ID/Name is not included into any of SNMP Alert Traps sent from Ops Manager's Application Server.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Operator who watch Monitoring System (the one that receive SNMP Alert Traps from Ops Manager) needs to see Ops Manager's Organization ID/Name in order to quickly understand to where that Ops Manager's Alert is related to. Monitoring System (the one that receive SNMP Alert Traps from Ops Manager) needs to do additional work for each SNMP Alert Trap received (via GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/GET /orgs/{ORG-ID}

  7. Ability to to turn on audit log compression/deletion

    Ops Manager currently allows the ability to rotate audit logs based on the threshold settings in the Update MongoDB Log Settings modal but audit.logs do not compress/delete as the mongodb.logs do from the same modal. We would like the ability to either toggle compression/deletion of audit.log in that modal or a separate modal. We think a separate modal would be better since audit.logs may be used for security forensics and require a longer retention period.

  8. Ability to turn on/off MongoDB Agent auto-update in specific/all Cloud Manager/Atlas Project(s)

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ability to turn on/off MongoDB Agent auto-update in specific/all Cloud Manager/Atlas Project(s).

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Cloud Manager/Atlas Project will warn a user with One or more software components are out of date: MongoDB Agent every time a new version of MongoDB Agent is released, so a user will need to always manually click on Update Software Components button to get rid of that warning (filename: 2020-04-06mongodbagentupdatewarning.png). Frequent updates of MongoDB Agent creates lots of noise for users who is willing to get rid…

  9. MMS Alert for Balancer Down status

    please provide an option in Ops Manager to monitor the balancer status and add to alerts?
    So, we will know if balancer is not running.

    Note:
    Normally the balancer would be disabled during backups and during a scheduled Balancing Window downtime.
    I believe that the Balancer has a duty cycle of either 10 secs when nothing recently to balance, or 1 sec when there's a bunch of balancing to do.
    Any alert would need to account for these:
    the changelog shows chunk moves commanded
    the actionlog shows balancer state change history
    the settings collection has the balancer state

  10. 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.

  11. Automation Agent Client Certification Validation

    Many customers require that the MMS automation agent has a valid x509 for TLS communications with Ops Manager. With the Kubernetes Operator this is not currently possible so these customers cannot use the Operator to deploy MongoDB instances within their environments.

    This feature would improve the security of communications between agents and the Ops Manager and meet the security requirements of many of our customers who cannot move to services like Atlas.

  14. Add Backup configuration to MongoDB Custom Resource

    We are going to address this later in July-August.
    When Backup configuration is straight forward, workflow around deleting or modifying it is a bit more complicated. We Would like to get it right.

  15. 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.

  16. Define current limits of Kubernetes Operator

    > 1.) What is the limiting factor of the Operator? Is it number of Pods, number of Custom Resources (e.g. MongoDB, MongoDBUser) or something else?

    > 2.) What does the number of "Clusters" refer to? Does it differ for Standalone, ReplicaSet and ShardedCluster?

    > 3.) How many instances of the "Clusters" in 2.) are supported per MongoDB Operator?

    Is there any way to add this sort of data to our documentation?

    Thanks

    We are planning to publish a number of recommendations for the most popular cluster sizes and types. ETA is approx September. We will expect the gradual update to our production notes and docs until then

  17. 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.

  18. Change namespace option on mongomirror

    I was wondering why you can migrate data but you actually (as far I as saw) cannot change the database name during the process of migration (not using mongod/mongorestore unix/win commands but Atlas directly).

    From the technical support:

    "This is because Live Migration using mongomirror as an underlying process, which in this case tails the oplog and recreates the data exactly as is. This tool is typically used to minimize downtime, especially in production environments, for users who are migrating their data as is while writes are still occurring on the source instance. "

    However, as I responded:

    "Ok thanks…

  19. Provide mechanism for internal password rotation of the automation user

    Ops Manager automation currently uses an mms-automation user for node management, but the password for that user is set once and stays forever unless it is updated via the Ops Manager API.

    This feature would provide a mechanism that allows this password to be re-generated via the UI or an API call and have it automatically updated on the managed mongod instances as well.
