      Description

      The "MongoDB starting" logline (and related lines) are logged when mongod/mongos starts up, and provide basic information about the environment in use that is invaluable when diagnosing issues:

      However, since 3.0.1, much initialisation work is done ahead of these basic log lines. Specifically, storage engine initialisation (which includes journal replay), and setting up sockets (which is worse as of 3.1.9).

      While I understand the need to initialise sockets and the storage engine as early as possible, it can be very problematic for these to be done ahead of basic logging of things like version number, build info, and options. This is because there are ample opportunities where the server can log errors and exit before the basic environment information has been logged.

      For example, compare the behaviour when the port is already in use:

      $ /m/3.2.0-rc0/bin/mongod

      Logging this very basic information ahead of initialising sockets or storage should not deprive those systems of any significant resources. Is there any reason it should not be done first thing inside _initAndListen? As long as initialising sockets comes immediately after, followed immediately by storage engine init, then this should be fine, right?
