  • Sharding


    To connect to a shard cluster, specify the address
    of one or more mongos instances in the connection string.
    Multiple servers may be delimited by a comma.

    // Using one server as the seed list
    $m = new MongoClient("mongodb://");

    // Using multiple servers as the seed list
    $m = new MongoClient("mongodb://,");

    Regardless of whether each shard is a stand-alone
    mongod server or a full replica set, the driver’s
    connection process is the same. All database communication will be
    routed through mongos.

    the » sharding documentation.
