Mongodb db.serverStatus().storageEngine are not shown

I'm using MongoDB of version 4.2.8

The storage engine is wiredTiger

I entered the db.serverStatus().wiredTiger to monitor cache usage, but storageEngine and wiredTiger field are not shown.

On the other hand, consist of standalone can see these field

Can't we check in shard cluster mode?

this is my shard server & config server config file

    mongos does not store any data itself, this is probably why it doesn't report a storage engine.

    I don't know if you can have different storage engines in different shards, seems theoretically possible to me.

    You could use https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/command/listShards/ to identify the shards and query each of them for their storage engines.
