Quick Start

This section describes how to run YCSB on MongoDB running locally.

1. Start MongoDB

First, download MongoDB and start mongod. For example, to start MongoDB on x86-64 Linux box:

tar xfvz mongodb-linux-x86_64-1.8.3.tgz
mkdir /tmp/mongodb
cd mongodb-linux-x86_64-1.8.3
./bin/mongod --dbpath /tmp/mongodb

2. Set Up YCSB

Clone the YCSB git repository and compile:

git clone git://
mvn clean package

3. Run YCSB

Now you are ready to run! First, load the data:

./bin/ycsb load mongodb -s -P workloads/workloada

Then, run the workload:

./bin/ycsb run mongodb -s -P workloads/workloada

See the next section for the list of configuration parameters for MongoDB.

MongoDB Configuration Parameters

mongodb.url (default: mongodb://localhost:27017)

mongodb.database (default: ycsb)

mongodb.writeConcern (default safe)

mongodb.maxconnections (default 10)

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
