FTBasePath


Short Description: Define the drive and folder for the fulltext search indexes.

Description:

You can employ the setting FTBasePath=d:\full_text to store the fulltext index of databases in a different location including a different drive. This allows to make use of more I/O channels and avoid fragmentation on the data drives.

This option can also be used to trim down your backup space. Lotus Domino can re-create the search index, so there is no need to save the search index on a backup tape. You can move all search indexes to a folder and exclude that from the Backup.

Note:

Putting the folder on a network drive might cause bad performance for your server!
