Currently we have collections of 4TB in size; the wiredTiger data file is one-large 4TB file, making it very difficult for us to rsync, copy, etc.
I would like to suggest an Improvement to MongoDB whereby the file size could be limited (eg, maxFileSize parameter), so we could have many smaller files instead of one large file. Probably similar requirement for index file while you are at it ?
I previously spoke to Kirby (Mongo U) and Muthu Chinnasamy regarding this suggestion at MongoDB World 2018.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
