Do you think Domino ODS can be improved by using multiple small files instead of a single big file? DB2 uses something like this. A Domino database can be a directory (or zip?) instead of a file. one file for design, one file for ACL, index files, view files, datafiles, NLOs. With this Domino will be able to forget the 64GB limit (on of our customer reached, that was my starting point). With paralell read-write i/o can be improved.

I do like the idea of the design being in a separate file - it would make managing designs easier - but wouldn't the increased I/O, and having to have multiple files open in memory cause performance issues?

(I do think it would be worth examining, but I don't think IBM are likely to do any more work on Notes at all :( )

The beauty of the Domino database is that everything is in a single file. Moving to other platforms is always a huge surprise in how complex everything is. Sending a Domino application to someone is as simple as attaching a single file. Try to do that with a DB2 app or any other platform.

To me, I don't think that this should be changed. However, I would definitely be willing to separate the view indexes from the database in a similar manner to the way the full text index is separated. This would probably give you the most bang for the buck and would be easily recreated if the database was moved to a different server. It would also resolve issues with large view indexes causing compact and access issues on databases.
