sh.commitReshardCollection()

  • Example
sh.commitReshardCollection(namespace)

New in version 5.0.

During a resharding operation, MongoDB does not block writes until the estimated duration to complete the resharding operation is below two seconds.

If the current estimate is above two seconds but the time frame is acceptable to you, you can finish resharding faster. The sh.commitReshardCollection() method blocks writes early and forces the resharding operation to complete.

Important

For the database command, see the commitReshardCollection command.

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:

The sh.commitReshardCollection() method has the following syntax:

The sh.commitReshardCollection() method takes the following parameter:
