MongoDB Package Components

On this page

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

The core components in the MongoDB package are:

mongod
the core database process
the controller and query router for sharded clusters
mongosh
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.

New in version 3.6: MongoDB is packaged with an install_compass script, which is a platform-specific installer for MongoDB Compass Community Edition.
