Metric for Displaying Search Index Consistency Lag
I would like a metric that shows me what the latency is between the state of the MongoDB collection and the Search index in Atlas.
The difference between the optime of the collection and the optime of the Search index would be the latency. Please consider exposing this metric.
We heard you loud and clear! This work has been started, though it is not so simple. I will update the group when it is complete and share a bit of instructions on how to interpret the metrics in case anything is unclear. Thank you all for being so vocal about the future of your product.
Please don’t hesitate with any questions. Keep in mind, the search index should be largely up to date with the database as we are really close by. :-)

This would certainly be a great addition and if it is added as a Metric I think it makes sense to add an appropriate Alert associated to this Metric.
