db.collection.storageSize()

db.collection.storageSize()

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.

Returns:The total amount of storage allocated to this collection for document storage.

If collection data is compressed (which is the default for WiredTiger), the storage size reflects the compressed size and may be smaller than the value returned by db.collection.dataSize().

Provides a wrapper around the storageSize field of the collStats (i.e. db.collection.stats()) output.
