drop

The drop command removes an entire collection from a database. The command has following syntax:

{ drop: <collection_name> }

The mongo shell provides the equivalent helper method:

db.collection.drop();

Note that this command also removes any indexes associated with the dropped collection.

Warning

This command obtains a write lock on the affected database and will block other operations until it has completed.
