The mongorestore command is a command-line tool included in the MongoDB server package. It is used to restore data from a MongoDB backup, typically created using the mongodump command. The restored data can be written to a new or existing MongoDB deployment. The mongorestore command reads the data from a backup file and loads it into a MongoDB instance.
