32 BIT BUILD NOTES
MongoDB uses memory mapped files. If built as a 32 bit executable, you will not be able to work with large (multi-gigabyte) databases. However, 32 bit builds work fine with small development databases.
Most MongoDB source files (src/mongo folder and below) are made available under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL). See individual files for details.
As an exception, the files in the client/, debian/, rpm/, utils/mongoutils, and all subdirectories thereof are made available under the terms of the Apache License, version 2.0.
