comment Copy Remote Database MongoDB
I answered your question on MongoDB-user Google group which is probably a more appropriate place for the question anyway.

comment Mongodb extremely slow with bulk inserts and showing erratic behavior
why don't you post this on mongodb-user google group - this isn't a simple question/answer - there is a lot of information that would help here. Without more details about what your application is doing, what the indexes are, how the space is allocated, what sort of storage, OS settings, etc. it would mostly be guessing. Btw, why are you sending 20K documents - they will be split into 1K batches by driver anyway, why not have more threads sending 1K batches - also make sure that you use "unordered" bulk inserts.

comment How to determine database read/write ratio on MongoDB MMS?
are you mainly asking about a single node (primary of replica set) or about a sharded cluster?

comment High Global Lock % on Mongodb
Also index miss does not mean that the record was not in an index, it means that index was not in RAM.

I think you misread the chart - idx miss is 0.

comment MongoDB replication to local hard drive
yes, you just need to run the second mongod on a different port with different dbpath. You will also need to set up appropriate voting/priority to make sure that you don't lose the primary in the case where secondary mongod dies for some reason.

comment MongoDB doesnt start normally?
mongod does not connect - mongod is the server. --fork just says "spawn mongod into a separate process so I can get the console control back".

'mongo' command starts the interactive shell for connection to mongodb it is not the database. 'mongod' is the command for starting mongodb server.
