Compact the Data Index Immediately

You can compact the data index either by sending an action from your Web browser, or by using the IDOL Admin interface.

To compact the data index by sending an action from your Web browser

Send a DRECOMPACT action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:

http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DRECOMPACT

where:

IDOLhost is the IP address or host name of the machine on which HPE IDOL Server is installed.
indexPort is the HPE IDOL Server index port (specified as IndexPort in the [Server] section of the HPE IDOL Server configuration file).

For example:

http://MyHost:20001/DRECOMPACT

This action uses port 20001 to compact the data content of an HPE IDOL Server that is located on a machine with host name MyHost.

You can restrict compaction to the NodeTable (document storage) stage by using the index parameter Type.

For example:

http://MyHost:20001/DRECOMPACT?Type=NodeTable

After you start a DRECOMPACT operation, you can pause the index action by sending an IndexerGetStatus action with the IndexAction parameter set to pause. You can also cancel the index action by sending an IndexerGetStatus action with the IndexAction parameter set to Cancel. In this case, the next DRECOMPACT operation that you send resumes where the previous compaction stopped.

To compact the data index by using IDOL Admin

  1. In IDOL Admin, go to Control > Console > Service Control.
  2. Click Compact.

    A confirmation message appears.

  3. Click Compact.

You can monitor the progress of the DRECOMPACT action in the Recent Tasks panel.
