Notes/Domino 10 FT Index Auto Update

Daniel Nashed  30 January 2019 08:39:20
There is a new feature in Notes/Domino 10 which is enabled out of the box.

When you do a FT search, the backend checks if the index is up to date and will index up to 200 documents before the search is executed.
If there are more than 200 documents to index, it will queue an update request for immediate action.

This happens on client and server based databases and the index update is done in the backend where the database resists.

I really like the feature but on my client with a larger local mailfile (8 GB) this causes some delay in some cases where the dialog was displayed for a couple of seconds once in a while.

If you have the same experience I would be interested in your feedback (here or by mail).
Time it takes, how often you see detail, database size, number of documents, version, client/server...

If this happens too often that you have longer delays you can disable the auto update via notes.ini

FT_SUPPRESS_AUTO_UPDATING=1 (dynamic on client and server)
