解决mongodb - How to stop mongo DB in one command

itPublisher 分享于 2017-03-13


I need to be able to start/stop MongoDB on the cli. It is quite simple to start:


But to stop mongo DB, I need to run open mongo shell first and then type two commands:

$ ./mongo

use admin


So I don't know how to stop mongo DB in one line. Any help?

Starting and Stopping MongoDB is covered in the MongoDB manual. It explains the various options of stopping MongoDB through the shell, cli, drivers etc. It also details the risks of incorrectly stopping MongoDB (such as data corruption) and talks about the different kill signals.

Additionally, if you have installed MongoDB using a package manager for Ubuntu or Debian then you can stop mongod as follows:

  • Upstart: sudo service mongod stop

  • Sysvinit: sudo /etc/init.d/mongod stop

Or on Mac OS X

Or on Red Hat based systems:

  • service mongod stop

Or on Windows if you have installed as a service named MongoDB:

  • net stop MongoDB

To learn more about the problems of an unclean shutdown, how to best avoid such a scenario and what to do in the event of an unclean shutdown, please see: Recover Data after an Unexpected Shutdown.

That way, you don't need to know the PID. –  Jon M Mar 20 '16 at 14:00      One additional warning might help: If you started mongod in the foreground, do NOT use CTRL-C to shut it down, since this may lead to lost data. –  DrMickeyLauer Mar 27 '16 at 10:20 1   Or on Mac: 'ps -ax | grep mongod', then kill the process number –  Bryan Grace Nov 4 '16 at 5:34  |  show more comment

If you literally want a one line equivalent to the commands in your original question, you could alias:

mongo --eval "db.getSiblingDB('admin').shutdownServer()"

Mark's answer on starting and stopping MongoDB via services is the more typical (and recommended) administrative approach.

answered Aug 2 '12 at 12:10 Stennie 34.6k 6 80 108      Great answer. When setting up multiple instances on development machine (trying the replication set before deployment) it helps to have a .bat start C:\mongodb\bin\mongod.exe --config C:\net2\primary1-pc\mongod.cfg start C:\mongodb\bin\mongod.exe --config C:\net2\secondary1-pc\mongod.cfg ... and then have shutdown.bat C:\mongodb\bin\mongo.exe --eval "db.getSiblingDB('admin').shutdownServer()" --port 27017 C:\mongodb\bin\mongo.exe --eval "db.getSiblingDB('admin').shutdownServer()" --port 27018 C:\mongodb\bin\mongo.exe --eval "db.getSiblingDB('admin').shutdownServer()" --port 27019 ... –  Willmore Feb 1 '16 at 8:11      On Windows where it's installed as a service, I found that net stop MongoDB wasn't reliable, so I used something similar: mongo admin --eval "db.shutdownServer()" . Cheers! –  NateJ Aug 9 '16 at 21:25      @Stennie When I use the 'net stop MongoDB' on windows it is showing "System Error 1067 has occured" –  charan tej Mar 1 at 5:52


mongod --dbpath /path/to/your/db --shutdown

If the server is running as the foreground process in a terminal, this can be done by pressing


Another way to cleanly shut down a running server is to use the shutdown command,

> use admin
> db.shutdownServer();

Otherwise, a command like kill can be used to send the signal. If mongod has 10014 as its PID, the command would be

kill -2 10014

"Never use kill -9 (i.e. SIGKILL) to terminate a mongod instance." Docs:… –  Jens A. Koch Dec 15 '14 at 20:18 2   @JensA.Koch Ya, Nanhe wasn't telling anyone to use a -9 signal, so.. saying "using kill isn't a good idea" simply isn't accurate. Only instant termination is unsafe - a normal kill is perfectly safe and the documentation you linked to advocates it. –  B T Jul 23 '16 at 8:10


One liners to start or stop mongodb service using command line;

  1. To start the service use: NET START MONGODB
  2. To stop the service use: NET STOP MONGODB

I use this myself, it does work.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2185. c:\mongodb\bin>NET STOP MONGODB The service name is invalid. More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2185. –  user471450 Jun 15 '13 at 4:24      On windows you first have to install mongodb as a service using the --install option. The commands you can use a command similar to the following to install it as a service. mongod --install --directoryperdb --dbpath C:\mongodb-win32-x86_64-2.4.6\data --logpath C:\mongodb-win32-x86_64-2.4.6\log\mongodb.log --logappend --rest The command above must be run with administrator privileges. After that is done you can then use the net start and net stop commands provided by Hugo. –  Ed Ost Aug 31 '13 at 19:41

case "$1" in

         ulimit -v unlimited.
         ulimit -n 100000
     /opt/mongo/bin/mongod --fork --quiet --dbpath /data/db --bind_ip --rest   --config /etc/mongod.conf.

I know for SQLServer or Oracle, they will meet problems if we just kill them. –  XiaoYao Aug 2 '12 at 9:54      to kill is -9 but -15 u send SIGNAL. –  Boris Ivanov Aug 2 '12 at 10:14


I simply did:


Please note I'm using mongo 3.0.

From the given commands I think you're on Linux.

Start MongoDB:

$ sudo service mongod start
mongod start/running, process XXXXX 

Check the Status:

$ sudo service mongod status
mongod start/running, process XXXXX 

Stop MongoDB:

$ sudo service mongod stop
mongod stop/waiting
