GridFS writes to mongod after sharding

0 votes
66 views

We recently sharded a replica set and missed a process update which allowed that process to bypass the mongos and continue writing GridFS documents directly to the original replica set. The mongos seems to be aware of the fs.files document but cant find the fs.chunks related to that document. The fs.chunks can be found by going directly to the original mongod. Is there an easy way to tap mongos on the shoulder and say "hey, look over there"?

I generated some GridFs data on local MongoDB but I want to export these files only to production MongoDB.

I thought the time limit for Mongos to connect to Mongod was hard coded to 30 seconds. But some times after less than 2 seconds I see the following exception in the mongos logs -
Failed to connect to HOST:27017 - ExceededTimeLimit: Operation timed out
Any idea why?
