On a brief, to start mongod process
./mongod --dbpath /opt/mongodb/data/ --logpath /opt/mongodb/logs/mongod.log --port 27020
And to start mongos process
/mongos --configdb xx.xx.xx.xx:39000,xx.xx.xx.xx:39001,xx.xx.xx.xx:39002 --logpath /opt/mongodb/logs/router.log --port 10000
Please refer the attached script for the complete process.
