MongoDB Touch Command

MongoDB 2.2 introduced the touch command, which loads data from the data storage layer into memory. The touch command will load a collection's documents, indexes or both into memory. This can be ideal to preheat a newly started server, in order to avoid page faults and slow performance once the server is brought into production. You can also use this when adding a new secondary to an existing replica set to ensure speedy subsequent reads.
