  1. 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}

    planned  ·  Andrey responded

    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.

  4. Show time it took to complete a snapshot

    In order to better troubleshoot snapshot performance issues, or maintain an understanding of how snapshots are performing and whether one is approaching a threshold where they wont be able to keep up, its a good idea to expose how long a snapshot took in the View All Snapshots page. This would also aid in quickly identifying which snapshots are full vs incremental.

  5. 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

  6. Provide recurring/daily reporting on backup status from Ops Manager

    Ops Manager should generate a recurring/daily report of the status of all backups. This report should include at least a list of successful snapshots, a list of unsuccessful snapshots (over the configured reporting period), and the latest successful snapshot for each deployment being backed up. Additionally, this report may include resource availability such as storage available for future snapshots.

  7. SAML support in Ops Manager API

    SAML is available as an authentication mechanism and we're currently using it with keycloack (centralized identity provider).

    It works well with Ops Manager but there seems to be no support whatsoever in Ops Manager 4.4 API to programmatically add / update / delete SAML groups on Organizations or Projects.

    The official API documentation doesn't even recognize that SAML is available.

    Mongo support has confirmed that and it's a target feature in their internal backlog.
    This idea will hopefully speed up things.

  8. Do not download EOL releases

    Currently our Ops Mgrs keep re-downloading EOL releases of mongodb, e.g. mongodb-linux-x8664-2.6.12, mongodb-linux-x8664-3.0.15, etc. Ops Manager should automatically exclude EOL releases - they are taking up unnecessary disk space.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Sharded Cluster Snapshot Restores - Throttling and Src/Dst Mapping

    When restoring a sharded cluster snapshot, provide a means of mapping the source shard replica set names to the target shard replica set names. This will allow users to predictably restore large/small shards to the appropriate target hosts.

    Currently, this can be done for sharded clusters with fewer than 10 shards by naming the shards in a predicable shard## pattern. However, greater than ~10 shards leads to an alphabetical => alphanumeric restore plan (e.g. shardA10 restores to shardB2).

    Restoring large sharded clusters can also overwhelm networks where MongoDB Agents are downloading snapshots from Ops Manager(s) at the same time. Please…

  18. Send `Monitoring is down` and `Backup is down` alerts for each MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) and include hostname information in

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Monitoring is down and Backup is down alerts needs to be sent for each individual MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) which become down, Monitoring is down and Backup is down alerts should include hostname information in them.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Customer can't easily identify which MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) become down without hostname information available in the alert (in multi-project environment this becomes operational pain for the customer).
