  • In the Summary page, a new widget has been added, labeled, "Top queries that might need an index," as seen here:

    This feature will fetch the top 20 queries, as ranked by time. It will then fetch those queries' no_index.tput metrics and show any that have non-zero no_index observations during the defined time interval.

  • The top processes widget has been removed from the Summary page.
  • The row in the Profiler showing totals has been removed when filtering by query text or tags, due to incorrect data being shown. The percentage numbers and blue bar charts have also been hidden as a result.

  • The Node Groups view of the Inventory tool is now enabled for all customers (although please note that it is only visible if there are MongoDB hosts in the environment).

  • Increased the limit of viewable charts to 30 per page on the Machine View dashboard. This way the pagination is not shown for a collection using this view, and all charts can load at once.
