  1. StackOverflow Hacker Post, and the repo Hacker GitHub
var b = new Date()
#query here
print(new Date() - b + " ms")

Or if you only want to compare queries, this is after you read cursor.explain(): Analyze Query Performance.

PS: bear in mind that this plugin, as far as I understand, loads itself using the mongorc file, so you have to remove --norc from the original command for m121.

If it loads, you’ll see:

MongoDB server version: 4.2.11
Mongo-Hacker 0.1.1

It also tweaks the prompt (I didn’t like it). You can probably change this in the rc file. Looks like a very nice plugin though.
