top

top is an administrative command that returns usage statistics for each collection. top provides amount of time, in microseconds, used and a count of operations for the following event types:

  • total
  • readLock
  • writeLock
  • queries
  • getmore
  • insert
  • update
  • remove
  • commands
Important

The top command must be run against a mongod instance. Running top against a mongos instance will return an error.

Issue the top command against the admin database in the form:

{ top: 1 }

At the mongo shell prompt, use top with the following invocation:

db.adminCommand("top")

Alternately you can use top as follows:

db.adminCommand( { top: 1 } )

The output of the top command would resemble the following output:

{
"totals" : {
"records.users" : {
"total" : {
"time" : 305277,
"count" : 2825
},
"readLock" : {
"time" : 305264,
"count" : 2824
},
"writeLock" : {
"time" : 13,
"count" : 1
},
"queries" : {
"time" : 305264,
"count" : 2824
},
"getmore" : {
"time" : 0,
"count" : 0
},
"insert" : {
"time" : 0,
"count" : 0
},
"update" : {
"time" : 0,
"count" : 0
},
"remove" : {
"time" : 0,
"count" : 0
},
"commands" : {
"time" : 0,
"count" : 0
}
}
}
