Typically, there exist databases which have high informational value but long, even medium term retention may not be desirable.
What I'm proposing is for templated databases to be automatically deleted and re-created on a configured interval.
The typical scenario is databases like domlog.nsf, which provides invaluable insight into a website's usage patterns, bad URLs, data on external referers etc. On a high volume website, this database grows dramatically from day-to-day. Using the Archiving feature to delete documents is highly resource intensive making it inpractical.
LOG.NSF is another example. Compacting to relinquish unused space is impossible in this case without a server shutdown.
What I propose is a mechanism whereby Domino literally deletes and recreates specified databases on an interval, or on a size threshold, using it's internal mechanics to place a semaphore on such databases for the short procedure.
In the case of domlog.nsf, I am aware there are third party tools to analyse textual logging (ie not domlog.nsf), however I believe this functionality is fundamentally important for websites and should be internalised within Domino.
