Where to find mongoreplay tool in mongodb 4.0 community version for windows? It is not in the same place as other tools - mongoexport, mongoimport, etc.

1 Answer 1


mongoreplay is currently not included in the Windows installation packages (as at MongoDB 4.0). This tool uses the libpcap packet capture library which is available on most UNIX/Linux platforms but is not standard on Windows.

There's a relevant feature request to watch/upvote in the MongoDB Jira issue tracker: TOOLS-1730: Release mongoreplay for windows.

I also raised DOCS-12355 as this should be more clearly noted in the documentation.
