MongoDB README
DOCUMENTATION
http://www.mongodb.org/
COMPONENTS
mongod - The database process.
mongos - Sharding controller.
mongo - The database shell (uses interactive javascript).
BUILDING
see docs/building.md
RUNNING
To see command line options invoke:
$ ./mongod --help
To run a single server database:
$ mkdir /data/db
$ ./mongod
$
$ # mongo shell connects to localhost and test database by default:
$ ./mongo
> help
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.

GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL). See individual files for
