Rather than having to turn full-text indexing off for the whole server, you can disable it at a database level in Domino 8.
It’s as easy as selecting the database property “Don’t allow simple search” for the database.
First introduced in release 6.0.3, this variable prohibits on-the-fly full-text indexes and can help minimize associated CPU consumption.
This variable doesn’t impact functionality of permanently built full-text indexes.
It simply prevents applications from building full-text indexes on the fly.
For example, if you have an agent that causes a full-text index to be built on the fly, the agent will fail with two errors being reported.
The error “Error executing agent ‘Agent Name’ in ‘Database Name.nsf’: Database is not full-text indexed” will appear in the Domino server’s log and the message “ERROR: Database is not full-text indexed” will appear in the agent’s log.
To resolve this issue, permanently create the full-text indexes the application requires.
This ensures the application functions correctly, while still preserving performance of your Domino server.
Lotus Domino 8 server code provides more flexibility for disabling full-text indexing.
Full-text indexing is a three-word phrase most Lotus Domino administrators don’t want to hear.
