mongoc_read_concern_t - Man Page

Read Concern abstraction


New in MongoDB 3.2.

The mongoc_read_concern_t allows clients to choose a level of isolation for their reads. The default, MONGOC_READ_CONCERN_LEVEL_LOCAL, is right for the great majority of applications.

You can specify a read concern on connection objects, database objects, or collection objects.

See readConcern on the MongoDB website for more information.

Read Concern is only sent to MongoDB when it has explicitly been set by mongoc_read_concern_set_level() to anything other than NULL.

MONGOC_READ_CONCERN_LEVEL_LOCALLevel "local", the default.3.2

For the sake of compatibility with future versions of MongoDB, mongoc_read_concern_set_level() allows any string, not just this list of known read concern levels.

See Read Concern Levels in the MongoDB manual for more information about the individual read concern levels.
