Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

FT_Index_Ignore_Attachment_Types


Short Description: Provides the ability to specify attachment types that are not to be included in full text indexes.

Description:

The notes.ini FT_Index_Ignore_Attachment_Types lets administrators specify additional file types to ignore in the indexing of attachments (Unlike FT_Index_Attachments which allows to add other). For example, the line


FT_Index_Ignore_Attachment_Types=*.tif


tells the indexer not to index attachments with the TIF extension. This can reduce the size of the full text index and speed the return of search results. To specify multiple file types to be ignored, separate them with a comma.

Default:

Since release 5.0.5, Notes/Domino ignores the following types of files when indexing attachments by default:
.NSF
.NTF
.SYS
.PAG
.IMG
.WAV
.GIF
.JPG
.DLL
.TAR
.EXE
.ZIP
.AU
.MPG
.MOV
.MP3

Recommendation:

Use this parameter to reduce the full text indexer load and improve performance.

Restarts:

The Domino server must be restarted after modifying this setting.
