Domino Server - Data Storage and Management 


Set a fixed size for an NSF

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: compact, storage
Nathan T. Freeman2636 - 16 2008 / (8)
Why not permit a hard quota on an NSF, and make that it's *starting* size as well, so no new OS-level allocation has to occur?  I can think of many cases where I'd like to say "make this NSF 100MB, no matter what data is in it.  Just pre-allocate the ...

Remove 64GB database size limit

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: 64gb, nsf, database
Nick Radov1333 - 26 2008 / (7)

I would like the 64GB limit on NSF and DB2NSF databases to be greatly increased. This limit has been in place since 5.0 and it causes serious problems for large and complex applications. Our web applications store hundreds of GB of medical data (mostly XML and other structured text formats) and ...


Setting to block replication of a replica if it has not replicated within the purge interval

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: replication, replication stubs
David Hablewitz15237 - 20 2010 / (7)
If a database replicates after being isolated for a long time, it can bring back documents that were deleted if the deletion stub has been purged.  There should be a setting that prevents replication of a replica that has not replicated within the purge interval.   Example:
Someone with ...

Two-stage Recycle Bin

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: recycle, restore, database delete
Marius Jaeger1947 - 29 2011 / (7)
It would be great to have in domino a server recycle bin, similar to the sitecollection recycle bin in sharepoint.

Every document that would be delete come first into the database recycle bin.
When the document is deleted from the database recylce bin it should be ...

Documentation for the NSF File Format

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: nsf, documentation, file format, pst, microsoft, open source, interoperability
Troy Howard199 - 27 2009 / (6)
As a software developer working with Lotus Notes, I would like to formally request the release of documentation for the NSF file format. Lotus Notes has a huge install base, and your customers have invested a lot of trust in your product, storing vital information within Notes databases.

Full-text indexes: Specify dedicated location

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: administration, full-text, enhancement, performance
Harkpabst Meliantrop3248 - 14 2007 / (6)
Full-text indexes are stored in folders (named after the .nsf file), that always reside in the same subfolder as the .nsf file itself. I propose to add an option to the server document, to place all full-text indexes into a dedicated location, similar to specifying the log path for transaction ...

Help certify NTFS Defragmentation tools

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: defragmentation
Adam Osborne536 - 14 2008 / (6)
Over time (and it doesn't take long) every Domino Server I have used on Windows begins to have a heavily fragmented file system. Most defrag vendors have solutions for Exchange and SQL Server, none for Domino.

Shutting down Domino to defrag its drives isn't a good solution in ...

New database property "Inherit design and ignore exceptions"

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: template, templates, design inheritence, design refresh
Hynek Kobelka8110 - 25 2009 / (6)
If a database refreshes/replaces its design from its master template then in each separate design element the property "Prohibit design refresh or replace to modify" or "Inherit from the design template:" can prevent that this element is inherited.
While this functionality is intended and usefull in many situations, most of ...

Store view indexes in a separate file

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: view, storage
Hynek Kobelka8110 - 17 2007 / (5)
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 ...

VSS Writer for Domino

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: backup, vss, domino
Dag Kvello221 - 11 2009 / (4)
I think this is long overdue now. Please IBM, give us VSS for Domino ?
I'm so tired of always having to create Freeze/Thaw scripts stop/start the Domino-service before a backup. Pretty much every serious application on Windows supports it (DB2, Oracle, SQL, Exchange, etc....) and has done so the last ...

Fixup/Compact should automatically mark clustered databases as Out Of Service

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: fixup, compact, domino server, cluster, clustering
Philip Storry849 - 10 2010 / (4)
When a server that is a member of a cluster performs consistency checks on a database, or compacts a database, it should automatically mark the database as Out of Service in the Cluster Database Directory for the duration of the operation.
(In the case of compact, it will only ...

One DAOS store for many domino servers

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: daos, domino
Marius Jaeger1947 - 20 2012 / (4)
Today every domino server has its own DAOS store, if DAOS is enabled.
It would be great we could have one DAOS store for many domino servers or rather for all servers in a domino domain.
And it would also great we could cluster the DAOS store.

Fix database time creep problem with new UNID algorithm

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: database, unid, time_creep
Nick Radov1333 - 13 2008 / (3)
There is a long-standing design flaw with how the Domino database engine assigns universal IDs to new documents. For details see IBM Reference # 1089161 (that document was written for 4.6 and 5.0 but the same problem is still present in 8.0). Domino uses a time stamp to allocate unique ...

Automatic database clustering

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: clustering, cluster, automatic
M A432 - 13 2007 / (3)
Need: when I create a new db on a clustered server in automatic is replicated all over the other members of the cluster group and containing - in the ACL and with no admin intervention - the cluster group members as "Managers" of the db to avoid replica conflict/problem. To made this option ...

Native XML storage and XQuery

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: xml, xpath, xquery
Nick Radov1333 - 26 2008 / (3)
I would like Domino to have native XML support equivalent to the pureXML feature in DB2. This would include the following enhancements.
  • Add a new "XML" note item type that would store a complete XML document in a structured format.
  • Allow for defining view indexes based on XPath ...

update task should include database name in error message

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: update
Christian Brandlehner1762 - 29 2008 / (3)
Currently the update task does not include the database name in error messages.
Error {reason may vary} Database is currently being indexed by another process
I suggest to add the database filename to the error message.

Catalog task should intercept database creations/deletions in realtime

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: doclink catalog
Dietmar Dumke907 - 06 2008 / (3)
If you create a new database with replicas on other locations servers, and publish the new database by sending a doclink to the users at the same day, the doc/database link will always try to open the replica on the server the doclink was created from. This is because at ...

Full-Text redirection to a dedicated server

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: ft, full-text, fulltext, index, redirection, .ft, manage
Gregory Engels1762 - 19 2008 / (2)
Allow for more control over the creation of a full text index for a database.
While an idea (linked above) already suggesting to redirect the full-text index creation for the whole server to a dedicated volume of (inexpensive and slow) disks, it does not go far enough to allow ...

Referenced Design Inheretence

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: design inheritence
Mark Demicoli11797 - 18 2008 / (2)
Design elements within Databases that inherit design, and design elements that inherit from other databases, should not physically exist in the inherited database, and instead be referenced by some kind of internal Domino pointer.  This is made more practical today by using DB2 as a backend, where 'schemas' can be ...

Domino should fully support Windows Server shadow copy & VSS for backup

:Domino Server / Data Storage and Management
: backup vss
Craig Wiseman21821 - 11 2010 / (2)
Domino server, when running on Windows platforms, should fully support VSS and shadow copy for backup. It's been around since Win2k3.
VSS operates at the  ...
