I keep getting index suggestion alerts for my cluster, and when I check the Performance Advisor, there is nothing there.
I’ve used Performance Advisor before to set up indices based on such alerts, but in the past few days my email inbox is flooded with index suggestion alerts, and no corresponding index suggestion in the Atlas UI. I think it’s because the suggestion gets “revoked” quickly - the alert gets opened then closed within just a few minutes, and I get 2 emails each time.
I have some scheduled tasks that do heavy lifting - my guess is that as these run, they trigger index suggestions, but those suggestions get closed/revoked once the task is done and the traffic reverts to normal. Completely removing the suggestions from the UI doesn’t seem like the best idea? I’ve tried to load performance advisor immediately after the task runs but I can’t catch them.
Some improvement ideas for this feature:
- Include the actual index suggestion in the email alert, instead of just directing the user to performance advisor
- Don’t completely revoke index suggestions in a way that makes them inaccessible via UI - flag them as ‘stale’ maybe?
Any ideas on how to access these disappearing suggestions so I can act on them?
