  2. Add collection level statistics to the measurements API

    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.

  3. Ability to customize subject line for System & Global Alerts

    Currently there's no way to customize the subject line of either a system or global alert. The subject line only has the project name & time. It doesn't even say why the alert was generated until the email alert is opened. Having the ability to modify the subject line, even if it's to certain predefined fields such as alert condition for example would be helpful in addressing alerts in an efficient and effective manner.

  4. 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 (the pain) Cloud Manager/Atlas Project will warn a user with One or more software components are out of date: MongoDB Agent every time a new version of MongoDB Agent is released, so a user will need to always manually click on Update Software Components button to get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…

  5. 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.

  6. Add `serverStatus.uptime` counter info into Metrics

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? We already collect serverStatus.uptime counter info from each and every MongoDB Server process, so we just need to add serverStatus.uptime counter info into Metrics so that it will be possible to track serverStatus.uptime changes through the time.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) If you'd like to calculate MongoDB Server process availability to know for how long your MongoDB Server process(es) was/were up and running, you'll need to analyze MongoDB Server process logs (in case if they are ever available for required period of time) to see last time MongoDB…

  10. Consider supporting the installation of mongosh via Ops Manager/automation agent

    Today, it is possible to install MongoDB software (mongoimport/export, mongodump/restore, mongo, bi connector) from Ops Manager via the automation agent.

    Ideally, it will be possible to have the same experience for the new MongoDB Shell (mongosh), so that customers don't need to put in place a separate set of processes nd scripts to install it.

  11. Add memory monitoring metrics

    Atlas -> please make buffers, cached, and MEM shared available under system memory metrics on Atlas for end users so we can calculate the criteria for auto scaling .

    Currently only Mongodb support can see these three metrics

  12. Benchmark backups in Ops Manager

    It would be helpful if, on the Snapshot overview page or on the Admin -> Backup page, there was the ability to benchmark the backup to help identify bottlenecks.

    Allow the user to select a deployment to test and then do a random sampling of data (ie: 100MB) to a temporary Snapshot location and then graph out the metrics for things like Memory/CPU/Disk IO on the source host, Database performance, Backup Agent performance, Network throughput, Blockstore/File System Store/S3 write performance, etc.

    Then create a report based on this benchmark that can be sent to technical support for recommendations.

    This will…

  13. Allow Webhook notifications for System Alerts

    Webhooks are available for Project and Global Alerts. However they are not available for System Alerts.

    It would be ideal to be able to use Webhooks for all alerts.

  14. Ops Manager API - System Alerts

    The ops manager api documentation specifies endpoints for polling group alerts and global alerts but is missing system alerts. We should be able to poll for system alerts via the ops manager api as well.

  15. Allow the Kubernetes Operator to delete a project

    Currently it is not possible to delete a project via kubectl command.

    As the Kubernetes Operator allows one to create a project (configmap) and deploy a replica set, we would expect it to also allow the deletion of a project so that we can fully automate the solution.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. Implement IAM role authentication for AWS SES in Ops Manager

    At the moment using AWS SES for email delivery in Ops Manager requires AWS Access Key and Secret Key. Please implement the IAM role authentication for this option as it has been done for the S3 endpoints.

  19. Add hostname/port attributes into all Cluster/Replica Set alert types

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Add hostname/port attributes into all Cluster/Replica Set alert types generated via SNMP Alert Traps, Ops Manager's Public API calls (Project/Global Alerts) and Alert Webhooks (Project/Global Alerts).

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Hostname/port attributes are currently missed in Cluster/Replica Set alert types and we only provide a name of the Cluster/Replica Set for which the alert was generated. Operator who watch Monitoring System (the one that receive Ops Manager Alerts) needs to see hostname/port information of a Shard/Replica Set for which such alert was generated, in order to quickly understand…

  20. Snapshots taken by Ops Manager Backups should include config file

    When restoring a snapshot through Ops Manager, automation will create the config file for you. But if you're restoring a snapshot manually, there's no config file! Surely we can include a sample mongod.conf withe sufficient information filled out to help a user get up and running again.
