MongoDB: cursor.batchSize() method

cursor.batchSize

The cursor.batchSize() method is used to specify the number of documents to return in each batch of the response from the MongoDB instance.

Syntax:

cursor.batchSize(size)

Parameters:

Name Description Required /
Optional
Type
size The number of documents to return per batch. Do not use a batch size of 1. Required integer

Sample document in the restaurants collection:


{
  "address": {
     "building": "1007",
     "coord": [ -73.856077, 40.848447 ],
     "street": "Morris Park Ave",
     "zipcode": "10462"
  },
  "borough": "Bronx",
  "cuisine": "Bakery",
  "grades": [
     { "date": { "$date": 1393804800000 }, "grade": "A", "score": 2 },
     { "date": { "$date": 1378857600000 }, "grade": "A", "score": 6 },
     { "date": { "$date": 1358985600000 }, "grade": "A", "score": 10 },
     { "date": { "$date": 1322006400000 }, "grade": "A", "score": 9 },
     { "date": { "$date": 1299715200000 }, "grade": "B", "score": 14 }
  ],
  "name": "Morris Park Bake Shop",
  "restaurant_id": "30075445"
}

Example: MongoDB: cursor.batchSize() method

The following example sets the batch size for the results of a query to 10. The batchSize() method does not change the output in the mongo shell, which, by default, iterates over the first 20 documents.

db.restaurants.find().batchSize(10);

Output:

> db.restaurants.find().batchSize(10);
