The filemd5 command returns the md5 hash for a single file stored using the GridFS specification. Client libraries use this command to verify that files are correctly written to MongoDB. The command takes the files_id of the file in question and the name of the GridFS root collection as arguments.

The command has the following syntax:

filemd5: ObjectId("4f1f10e37671b50e4ecd2776"),
root: "fs"

MongoDB computes the filemd5 using all data in the GridFS file object pulled sequentially from each chunk in the chunks collection.
