How about a database option to store the view indexes not in the current NSF-file but rather in a separate file (same filename only a different extension (*.idx)). In many applications the index sizes take about 50% and more of the whole database size. It would be great for back-ups and archiving if the actual "data" could be separated from the indexes.
  • This functionality should be optional per database for backwards compatibility.
  • The new file would have to be protected by the same ACL and encryption settings as the NSF-file

This is a great idea from the performance point of view.

This would also help if external index files weren't counted against the 64GB database size limit.

I just posted more detailed thoughts about this (and the related enhancement request SPR) on my blog:

This would be the next step in performance options which could be made by domino !!! I guess this is the next logical step to make for iris

Great idea! This would save disk I/O, storage space, reduce update duration, effectively increase file size limits...
