Manage In-Progress Index Creation¶
To see the status of the indexing processes, you can use the db.currentOp() method in the mongo shell. The value of the query field and the msg field will indicate if the operation is an index build. The msg field also indicates the percent of the build that is complete.
For more information see db.currentOp().
Changed in version 2.4: Before MongoDB 2.4, you could only terminate background index builds. After 2.4, you can terminate any index build, including foreground index builds.
