Metric "document.scanned" is not the same as nscannedObjects (from explain)

      The scanned value comes from cursor.scanned() which is not the same as the docs loaded/scanned (nscannedOjbects in explain) but is instead the indexes (entries) scanned or number of docs returned.

      This can be shown easily using a covered query:

      > var firstSS = db.serverStatus()
      > db.g.find({b:2},{ b:1, _id:0}).explain()
      {
      	"cursor" : "BtreeCursor b_1",
      	"isMultiKey" : false,
      	"n" : 2,
      	"nscannedObjects" : 0,
      	"nscanned" : 2,
      	"nscannedObjectsAllPlans" : 0,
      	"nscannedAllPlans" : 2,
      ...}
      > db.serverStatus().metrics.document.scanned - firstSS.metrics.document.scanned
      2
