Starting with MongoDB 4.4, the MongoDB Database Tools are now released separately
from the MongoDB Server and use their own versioning, with an initial
100.0.0. Previously, these tools were released
alongside the MongoDB Server and used matching versioning.
For documentation on the MongoDB 4.2 or earlier versions of these tools, reference the MongoDB Server Documentation for that version of the tool:
The MongoDB Database Tools can be downloaded from the MongoDB Download Center.
Please see the installation guide for your platform for specific installation instructions.
