$sum (aggregation)

$sum

Returns the sum of all the values for a specified field in the grouped documents, as in the second use above.

Alternately, if you specify a value as an argument, $sum will increment this field by the specified value for every document in the grouping. Typically, as in the first use above, specify a value of 1 in order to count members of the group.
