Allows you to delete or archive documents that have reached a specific age. By default, documents are deleted when they expire. If you want to archive them instead, specify the name of the database you want to use for archiving in the ExpireIntoDatabase parameter in each of the child IDOL server configuration files' database sections.

The date that determines whether a document should be expired can be read from a field in the document or from the expiry time that is set for the database that contains the document. If a child IDOL server is unable to determine whether a document should be expired (because the document does not contain a field that sets its expiry date and the document's database has no expiry time set), the IDOL server does not expire the document.


This command uses port 16001 to expire the documents from IDOL server which is located on a machine with the IP address
