View Cluster Configuration

To list the databases that have sharding enabled, query the databases collection in the Config Database. A database has sharding enabled if the value of the partitioned field is true. Connect to a mongos instance with a mongo shell, and run the following operation to get a full list of databases with sharding enabled:

use config
db.databases.find( { "partitioned": true } )
Example

You can use the following sequence of commands to return a list of all databases in the cluster:

use config
db.databases.find()

If this returns the following result set:

{ "_id" : "test", "primary" : "shardB", "partitioned" : false }
{ "_id" : "animals", "primary" : "shardA", "partitioned" : true }
{ "_id" : "farms", "primary" : "shardA", "partitioned" : false }

Then sharding is only enabled for the animals database.

To list the current set of configured shards, use the listShards command, as follows:

db.adminCommand( { listShards : 1 } )

To view cluster details, issue db.printShardingStatus() or sh.status(). Both methods return the same output.

Example
In the following example output from sh.status()
  • sharding version displays the version number of the shard metadata.
  • shards displays a list of the mongod instances used as shards in the cluster.
  • databases displays all databases in the cluster, including database that do not have sharding enabled.
  • The chunks information for the foo database displays how many chunks are on each shard and displays the range of each chunk.
