cursor.itcount()
Important
mongo Shell Method

This page documents the mongo shell method, and does not refer to the MongoDB Node.js driver (or any other driver) method. For corresponding MongoDB driver API, refer to your specific MongoDB driver documentation instead.

Counts the number of documents remaining in a cursor.

itcount() is similar to cursor.count(), but actually executes the query on an existing iterator, exhausting its contents in the process.

The itcount() method has the following prototype form:

db.collection.find(<query>).itcount()
