32 BIT BUILD NOTES

  MongoDB uses memory mapped files.  If built as a 32 bit executable, you will
  not be able to work with large (multi-gigabyte) databases.  However, 32 bit
  builds work fine with small development databases.

LICENSE

  Most MongoDB source files (src/mongo folder and below) are made available under the terms of the
  GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL).  See individual files for
  details.

  As an exception, the files in the client/, debian/, rpm/,
  utils/mongoutils, and all subdirectories thereof are made available under
