      VPS server, Ubuntu 18.04, 4G Ram, 2 vCPU.

      I'm using MongoDB 4.2. mongodump finished fine without any errors. However, when I used mongorestore, I received an error like this:

      2019-10-08T10:28:37.947+0000 restoring indexes for collection mydb.mycol from metadata  
      2019-10-08T10:38:38.799+0000 finished restoring mydb.mycol (294293 documents, 0 failures)
      2019-10-08T10:38:38.799+0000 Failed: mydb.mycol: error creating indexes for mydb.mycol: createIndex error: connection(localhost:27777[-2]) unable to decode message length: read tcp> i/o timeout

      I rerun mongodump and mongorestore several times and still had the same problem. I tried to google, some people suggests running mongorestore with --noIndexRestore. It does the job, but I want to restore the indexes too.
      I installed MongoDB 4.2 by following the instruction at: https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/
      I ran both mongodump and mongorestore on the same VPS node (Ubuntu 18.04) which I installed MongoDB 4.2. So they all should have the same version. My backup and restore commands:
       mongodump --db mydb --host localhost:27777 --authenticationDatabase admin --username XXX --password XXX --numParallelCollections 1 --gzip --archive=/root/mdbbk.gz
      mongorestore --nsFrom $db$.$col$ --nsTo BKTEST_$db$.$col$ --host localhost:27777 --authenticationDatabase admin --username XXX --password XXX --numParallelCollections 1 --gzip --archive=/root/mdbbk.gz --stopOnError
      I suspect the indices would take a long time to be rebuilt. So the server timeouts. That's why it said read tcp> i/o timeout in the log.
