MongoDB README
DOCUMENTATION
http://www.mongodb.org/
COMPONENTS
mongod - The database process.
mongos - Sharding controller.
mongo - The database shell (uses interactive javascript).
BUILDING
For detail information about building, please see:
http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/Building
If you want to build everything (mongod, mongo, tools, etc):
$ scons .
If you only want to build the database:
$ scons
To install
$ scons --prefix=/opt/mongo install
Please note that prebuilt binaries are available on mongodb.org and may be the easier way to get started.
RUNNING
./mongod
runs the database. Use
./mongod --help
to see command line options.
COMPILER VERSIONS
Mongo has been tested with GCC 4.x and Visual Studio 2008. Older versions
of GCC may not be happy.
NOTES
Mongo 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.
WINDOWS
