      Description

      I found really bad performance on mongodb 2.6.4 (... 2.6.latest, 2.7.latest)..
      It seams that Query Plan Cache is always empty, and for each single query (not working over a specific index), mongodb performs a Query Plan.
      Performance are good only if hint() operator is specified with the query. I tested the same scenario on mongodb 2.4.3 but everything works fine.

      the test query

      db.test26.find({"user":"mario","removed":false,"objId":3}).explain()
       
      Explain result:
       
      {
          "cursor" : "BtreeCursor user_1_removed_1_a_1",
          "isMultiKey" : false,
          "n" : 2,
          "nscannedObjects" : 210000,
          "nscanned" : 210000,
          "nscannedObjectsAllPlans" : 482615,
          "nscannedAllPlans" : 524601,
          "scanAndOrder" : false,
          "indexOnly" : false,
          "nYields" : 5158,
          "nChunkSkips" : 0,
          "millis" : 1072,
          "filterSet" : false
      }

      I tried to run these commands:

      db.test26.find({"user":"mario","removed":false,"objId":3}).explain()
      db.test26.find({"user":"mario","removed":false,"objId":3})
      db.test26.find({"user":"mario","removed":false,"objId":3}).hint("user_1_removed_1_a_1")

      getting the following log output:

      # log for query with explain true: [conn11] query test.test26 query: { query: { user: "mario", removed: false, objId: 3.0 }, $explain: true } planSummary: IXSCAN { user: 1.0, removed: 1.0, a: 1.0 } ntoreturn:0 ntoskip:0 nscanned:210000 nscannedObjects:210000 keyUpdates:0 numYields:1685 locks(micros) r:2127426 nreturned:1 reslen:3291 1072ms
      # log for query without explain: [conn11] query test.test26 query: { user: "mario", removed: false, objId: 3.0 } planSummary: IXSCAN { user: 1.0, removed: 1.0, a: 1.0 } ntoreturn:0 ntoskip:0 nscanned:210000 nscannedObjects:210000 keyUpdates:0 numYields:1 locks(micros) r:1298548 nreturned:2 reslen:424 981ms
      # log for query with hint: [conn11] query test.test26 query: { query: { user: "mario", removed: false, objId: 3.0 }, $hint: "user_1_removed_1_a_1" } planSummary: IXSCAN { user: 1.0, removed: 1.0, a: 1.0 } ntoreturn:0 ntoskip:0 nscanned:210000 nscannedObjects:210000 keyUpdates:0 numYields:1 locks(micros) r:777390 nreturned:2 reslen:424 390ms

      The query number 2 has the same performance of the query with the explain command, and I suppose that every time the query runs the mongodb server perform a full query plan!!! After the execution of the query, the Query Plan Cache seams to be empty

      db.collection.getPlanCache().listQueryShapes() = []

      Additional notes

      If I declare other indexes on the same collection the performance of query downgrade!

      mongodb 2.4.3 log for the same test:

      1st run of the query:  [conn2] query test.test26 query: { user: "mario", removed: false, objId: 3.0 } ntoreturn:0 ntoskip:0 nscanned:1470000 keyUpdates:0 numYields: 5 locks(micros) W:5252 r:8464649 nreturned:2 reslen:424 4381ms
      2nd run of the query:  [conn2] query test.test26 query: { user: "mario", removed: false, objId: 3.0 } ntoreturn:0 ntoskip:0 nscanned:210000 keyUpdates:0 locks(micros) r:652975 nreturned:2 reslen:424 652ms
