MongoDB REST Interface

MongoDB provides rest interface for basic observation of server status. The URL for rest interface is "port+1000".

For example, if you specify the mongodb port with 10000, the rest interface URL will be http://localhost:11000.

Remember, if you want to use rest interface, you have to specify "--rest" parameter when start up a mongodb instance.
