Allows you to reduce the space left when documents are deleted from the data index. The DRECOMPACT index action fills the space created through the document deletion with new documents. This process is similar to the de-fragmentation process.

After the compaction is complete, the index action recalculates the SortField information.

Note: Autonomy recommends that you back up Distributed Index Handler before compacting it.


This index action uses port 20001 to compact a DIH that is located on a machine with the IP address
