      Description

      The mongofiles tools has a few deficiencies:

      • the collection parameter is ignored
      • it makes implicit assumptions about collection suffix (".fs")
      • it does not properly delete chunks on replacing a file, but only the meta data, in the worst case it can even delete chunks of an unrelated file
      • the chunk size cannot be specified, it only ever uses the default size

      A patch set fixing these issues has been submitted as Github pull request #471 which fixes all of these issues.

      As per request in the pull request I'm opening up a new ticket describing the pull request as a whole.
