    Description

      The GridFS implementation as at MongoDB 2.4 currently only supports calculating md5 sums of fs.chunks collections sharded on either

      {files_id:1}

      or

      {files_id:1, n:1}

      .

      The documentation on Sharding GridFS Data Store describes the two valid shard keys but does not make it clear that these are the only options available.
