Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem

This document provides an overview of the issues found with Dedicated View Thread feature, which was introduced in Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 3, and indicates plans for addressing the issue in future releases.

Resolving the problem

There are four issues associated with this feature that have been reported to Quality Engineering in several SPRs (MQRO9W9BNL, MQRO9VZ8C6, MQRO9W9C6N, JPAI9WXLVD, and MLCSA7XHJF).

Issue #1 regarding "load updall <dbname> -t~ <viewname>"
  • You cannot turn off a dedicated view by updall -t~.
  • You can stop a dedicated view index task by running tell "View Indexer" stop <dbname> <viewname>, but when you update a note in the view or open the view, the Dedicated View Index task will be added to the Task list again.
  • This issue has been fixed in Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 4 (Release Notice & Fix List).

Issue #2 regarding "load updall <dbname> -t#nn <viewname>"
  • If no view name is specified, then no error message is displayed, and no views are enabled for the dedicated view index.
  • This issue is currently planned to be fixed in a future Domino release by displaying an error message.

Issue #3 regarding "tell "View Indexer" stop <dbname> <viewname>"
  • If the database does not exist or has no dedicated views, or if the view does not exit or is not a dedicated view, then no error and no output message will be displayed.
  • If no database name is provided, then all dedicated index views for the last one started will be stopped.
  • This issue is currently planned to be fixed in a future Domino release by displaying an error message.

Issue #4 regarding "load compact -b|-B <dbname>"
  • When a dedicated view task runs and gets interrupted using an inplace compact switch -b or -B, the dedicated view task won't re-appear when updating or opening the view. Workaround is to run compact again using copy style compact switch -c.
  • This issue is currently planned to be fixed in a future Domino release.
