  • Database Monitoring Enhancements
    A number of roles, or states of the replica set and sharded cluster, have been added for viewing. These include primary, secondary, startup, recovering, and rollback. View these in the Topology tab for Database Agent 21.9.0 and greater.

    Additionally, the Couchebase collector is enhanced with a Filter by Phase in the Queries page and elapsed time for the phases report in the Activity page.
