mongosh Method

This is a mongosh method. This is not the documentation for Node.js or other programming language specific driver methods.

In most cases, mongosh methods work the same way as the legacy mongo shell methods. However, some legacy methods are unavailable in mongosh.

For the legacy mongo shell documentation, refer to the documentation for the corresponding MongoDB Server release:

For MongoDB API drivers, refer to the language specific MongoDB driver documentation.

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()
