Replica Set with MongoDB on Linux Chao 3/2/12 3:25 PM
Started with command "./mongod --rest --replSet testSet"
Then in mongo run command "rs.initiate()"

in dbpath, MongoDB keeps generating local.* file, each is 2GB.

Is that normal? I don't have any operations yet, why there are so many
pre-allocate oplog files generated? Before I shut it down, 10 files
generated in about 10 minutes.

These files are the oplog (a capped collection which is fixed size) which defaults to five percent of free space. It is used for replication is a requirement.

If you want to use more, or less, space you can use the oplogSize option as listed in --help and the docs.
