  • Core Processes
  • Windows Services
  • Security Tools
  • MongoDB Compass

The core components in the MongoDB package are:

the core database process
the controller and query router for sharded clusters
the interactive shell

The mongod.exe and mongos.exe describe the options available for configuring MongoDB when running as a Windows Service. The mongod.exe and mongos.exe binaries provide a superset of the mongod and mongos options.

mongoldap and mongokerberos provide a method for validating a system's LDAP or Kerberos configuration respectively, and for testing that the authentication process for each succeeds for a given username.

MongoDB is packaged with an install_compass script, which is a platform-specific installer for MongoDB Compass Community Edition.
