cursor.itcount()
Important
mongosh Method

This page documents a mongosh method. This is not the documentation for a language-specific driver such as Node.js.

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

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

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()
