解决mongodb - How to stop mongo DB in one command

相关推荐:mongodb - How to create mapping in elasticsearch for index generated by mongo-connector

the MongoDB database and collection names as animals.kitten.I tried to create mapping as:$ curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/animals.kitten/_mapp

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

Find PID of mongod process using $ top

Kill the process by $ kill <PID> (the Mongo docs have more info on this)

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.

I believe the order for service is sudo service mongodb [start|stop|restart|status]. sudo service stop mongodb results in: stop: unrecognized service

@Jacob - We just tried this on ubuntu, you're right, I've edited the answer.

For Mac, you can also just do 'killall mongod'.

That way, you don't need to know the PID.

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.

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.

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 ...

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

I love using this way, it works without dbpath too, makes sense if you only have one instance running.

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 s

indow, I'd like to periodically run a script that will display various stats on the database activity, before displaying the stats, I'd like to clear

hutdown command,

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

Using kill isn't a good idea, this might lead to a broken DB, which needs a repair for restart. "Never use kill -9 (i.e. SIGKILL) to terminate a mongod instance." Docs:…

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

To start the service use: NET START MONGODB

To stop the service use: NET STOP MONGODB

I use this myself, it does work.

I get this on using those commands on windows:

c:\mongodb\bin>NET START MONGODB The service name is invalid.

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.

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.

So you just kill mongoDB directly,right?

I'm a beginner of MongoDB, is there any hurts to kill it?

I know for SQLServer or Oracle, they will meet problems if we just kill them.

– XiaoYao

to kill is -9 but -15 u send SIGNAL.
