       bsondump - MongoDB BSON Utility

       The bsondump converts BSON files into human-readable formats, including
       JSON. For example, bsondump is useful for reading the output files gen-
       erated by mongodump.

          bsondump  is a diagnostic tool for inspecting BSON files, not a tool
          for data ingestion or other application use.



       --help, -h
              Returns information on bsondump options and usage.

       --verbose, -v
              Increases the amount of internal reporting returned on  standard
              output  or in log files. Increase the verbosity with the -v form
              by including the option multiple times, (e.g. -vvvvv.)

              Runs bsondump in a quiet mode that attempts to limit the  amount
              of output. This option suppresses:

              o output from database commands

              o replication activity

              o connection accepted events

              o connection closed events

              Returns the bsondump release number.

              Validates  each BSON object before outputting it in JSON format.
              By default, bsondump enables --objcheck.   For  objects  with  a
              high degree of sub-document nesting, --objcheck can have a small
              impact on performance.  You  can  set  --noobjcheck  to  disable
              object checking.

              Changed  in  version 2.4: MongoDB enables --objcheck by default,
              to prevent any client from inserting malformed or  invalid  BSON
              into a MongoDB database.

              New in version 2.4.

              Disables  the  default document validation that MongoDB performs
              on all incoming BSON documents.

       --filter <JSON>
              Limits the documents that bsondump exports to only  those  docu-
              ments  that  match  the  JSON document specified as '<JSON>'. Be
              sure to include the document in single quotes to avoid  interac-
              tion with your system's shell environment.

       --type <=json|=debug>
              Changes  the  operation  of bsondump from outputting "JSON" (the
              default) to a debugging format.

              The final argument to bsondump is a  document  containing  BSON.
              This  data is typically generated by bsondump or by MongoDB in a
              rollback operation.

       By default, bsondump outputs data to standard output. To create  corre-
       sponding  JSON  files, you will need to use the shell redirect. See the
       following command:

          bsondump collection.bson > collection.json

       Use the following command (at the system shell)  to  produce  debugging
       output for a BSON file:

          bsondump --type=debug collection.bson
