Enabling countinuos compaction process for collections and indexes

How mongodb arranges data on disk ? does it uses LSM trees ?

Are there any way to increase the continous background compaction process (if any) to reduce read latency for the overall database which has enourmous amount of insert and update operations going on everyday ?

I am aware of the reindex to make the index more performant, but it acquires the lock.
