If you are new to MongoDB you may need to discover the databases and collections (basically objects) on your MongoDB instance. For this easily you can use a GUI tool like MongoVUE. But in this blog post I’m not going to describe about GUI tools. I’m going to explain about MongoShell to navigate through database objects.
