Optimization Strategies for MongoDBΒΆ

There are many factors that can affect database performance and responsiveness including index use, query structure, data models and application design, as well as operational factors such as architecture and system configuration.

This section describes techniques for optimizing application performance with MongoDB.

Evaluate Performance of Current Operations
MongoDB provides introspection tools that describe the query execution process, to allow users to test queries and build more efficient queries.
Use Capped Collections for Fast Writes and Reads
Outlines a use case for Capped Collections to optimize certain data ingestion work flows.
Optimize Query Performance
Introduces the use of projections to reduce the amount of data MongoDB sends to clients.
