    Description

      I try to import document with `mongoimport` using STDIN

       

      It seems to work only for large amount of documents. Single documents do are not inserted:

       

      ````

      { "acknowledged" : true, "deletedCount" : 0 }

      I insert document from syslog-ng, see https://www.syslog-ng.com/technical-documents/doc/syslog-ng-open-source-edition/3.26/administration-guide/44#TOPIC-1431069

       

      My syslog-ng code is like this:

      ```

      destination d_mongo_snat {
      program("/usr/bin/mongoimport --db=mip --collection=sessions.raw"
      flush-lines(1)
      persist-name("snat")
      template("{ \"v\":${VALID}, \"t0\":{\"$$date\":{\"$$numberLong\":\"${BEGINTIME}${.HW.BeginTime}000\"}} }")
      );
      };

      ```

      The number of documents in my collection is always a multiple of 1000, so it looks like mongoimport imports documents in batches of 1000 but as long as the batch is not full, the data is not written and gets lost.

      I was not able to find a way how to flush the buffer. "Ctrl-C" terminates the import without flushing the data.

       

      Any solution?
