comment MongoDB: RAM requirements
right, but the same can be said of any application that pages data off disk, the FS cache is no longer the primary caching method for the data as it once was with memory mapped files in the MMAP storage engine

comment MongoDB GridFS Offsite Backups
You could make it do what you want (similar to mongoriver mentioned in my answer) but neither tool is officially supported, and as I also mentioned you will need to add your own logic and verification to the process so you can be satisfied that all the data is mirrored offsite.

comment How unique are MongoDB _id fields?
Correct - if you are setting the _id when doing an insert, then it overrides the automatic creation of an ObjectID and can be anything you want - I often do this for test data with a simple incrementing integer. If you go with this type of solution, you just have to then be careful and make sure that you always populate the _id manually to avoid getting a mix of two types in the field (not a good idea generally, but particularly for your primary key)

comment Mongodb incremental oplog Dump not working
You are doing it correctly, you are just passing the incorrect timestamp - fix that and you will be pulling the information you actually want.
