Cursor iteration is very slow in pymongo

using pymongo 3.9.0

Hi @Yogita_Pal,

First of all, welcome to the MongoDB Community.
Could you share your code?

All the best,

Rodrigo (a.k.a. Logwriter)

cursor= db.collection.aggregate(

                    'yearSubstring': {'$substr': ["$__json.created_on", 0, 10]},
            '$match': {
                '$and': [{'yearSubstring': {'$gte': '12/01/2019'}}, {'yearSubstring': {'$lte': '12/02/2019'}}]


#query take around 4-5 seconds
while cursor and cursor.alive:
#but this while to read each cursor data take around 100 seconds

Just call list(cursor) to create a list of the results.
