Mongo DB README
DOCUMENTATION
http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/Home
COMPONENTS
mongod - The database process.
mongos - Sharding controller (sharding available later in Q209).
mongo - The interact javascript db shell.
BUILDING
For detail information about building, please see:
http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/Building
- Then use scons to build.
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
RUNNING
Run ./mongod and command line options will display.
COMPILER VERSIONS
Mongo has been tested with GCC 4.1.2 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.
