db.collection.stats()

Definition

db.collection.stats(scale | options)

Returns statistics about the collection. The method includes the following parameters:

Parameter Type Description
scale number

Optional. The scale used in the output to display the sizes of items. By default, output displays sizes in bytes. To display kilobytes rather than bytes, specify a scale value of 1024.

Changed in version 3.0: Legacy parameter format. Mutually exclusive with options as a document.

options document

Optional. Alternative to scale parameter. Use the options document to specify options, including scale.

New in version 3.0.

The options document can contain the following fields and values:

Field Type Description
scale number

Optional. The scale used in the output to display the sizes of items. By default, output displays sizes in bytes. To display kilobytes rather than bytes, specify a scale value of 1024.

New in version 3.0.

indexDetails boolean

Optional. If true, db.collection.stats() returns index details in addition to the collection stats.

Only works for WiredTiger storage engine.

Defaults to false.

New in version 3.0.

indexDetailsKey document

Optional. If indexDetails is true, you can use indexDetailsKey to filter index details by specifying the index key specification. Only the index that exactly matches indexDetailsKey will be returned.

If no match is found, indexDetails will display statistics for all indexes.

Use getIndexes() to discover index keys. You cannot use indexDetailsKey with indexDetailsName.

New in version 3.0.

indexDetailsName string

Optional. If indexDetails is true, you can use indexDetailsName to filter index details by specifying the index name. Only the index name that exactly matches indexDetailsName will be returned.

If no match is found, indexDetails will display statistics for all indexes.

Use getIndexes() to discover index names. You cannot use indexDetailsName with indexDetailsField.

New in version 3.0.

Returns:A document that contains statistics on the specified collection. See collStats for a breakdown of the returned statistics.

The stats() method provides a wrapper around the database command collStats.

Behavior

This method returns a JSON document with statistics related to the current mongod instance. Unless otherwise specified by the key name, values related to size are displayed in bytes and can be overridden by scale.

Note

The scale factor rounds values to whole numbers.

Depending on the storage engine, the data returned may differ. For details on the fields, see output details.

Index Filter Behavior

Filtering on indexDetails using either indexDetailsKey or indexDetailsName will only return a single matching index. If no exact match is found, indexDetails will show information on all indexes for the collection.

The indexDetailsKey field takes a document of the following form:

{ '<string>' : <value>, '<string>' : <value>, ... }

Where <string>> is the field that is indexed and <value> is either the direction of the index, or the special index type such as text or 2dsphere. See Index Types for the full list of index types.

Examples

Note

You can find the collection data used for these examples in our Getting Started Guide

As stats was not give a scale parameter, all size values are in bytes.

Stats Lookup With Scale

The following operation changes the scale of data from bytes to kilobytes by specifying a scale of 1024:

db.restaurants.stats( { scale : 1024 } )

The operation returns:

{
   "ns" : "guidebook.restaurants",
   "count" : 25359,
   "size" : 10381,
   "avgObjSize" : 419,

      "cuisine_1" : 128,
      "borough_1_address.zipcode_1" : 136
   },
   "ok" : 1
}

Statistics Lookup With Index Details

The following operation creates an indexDetails document that contains information related to each of the indexes within the collection:

db.restaurant.stats( { indexDetails : true } )

The operation returns:

Statistics Lookup With Filtered Index Details

To filter the indexes in the indexDetails field, you can either specify the index keys using the indexDetailsKey option or specify the index name using the indexDetailsName. To discover index keys and names for the collection, use db.collection.getIndexes().

Given the following index:

{
   "ns" : "guidebook.restaurants",
   "v" : 1,
   "key" : {
      "borough" : 1,
      "cuisine" : 1
   },
   "name" : "borough_1_cuisine_1"
}

The following operation filters the indexDetails document to a single index as defined by the indexDetailsKey document.

db.restaurants.stats(
   {
      'indexDetails' : true,
      'indexDetailsKey' :
      {
         'borough' : 1,
         'cuisine' : 1
      }
   }
)

The following operation filters the indexDetails document to a single index as defined by the indexDetailsName document.

db.restaurants.stats(
   {
      'indexDetails' : true,
      'indexDetailsName' : 'borough_1_cuisine_1'
   }
)

Both operations will return the same output:
