Configure Databases

The IDOL Content component can store documents in different databases. You can configure up to 65534 databases in an IDOL Content component.

Indexing data into different databases allows you to restrict queries to data in a particular database. This can improve the performance of your queries.

You can add databases to the IDOL Content component by editing the configuration file or by sending an index action. For details of adding a database by editing the configuration file, refer to the IDOL Server Administration Guide and the IDOL Server Reference.

To add IDOL Content component databases

For example:

This action uses port 20001 to create a new database named Archive on the IDOL Content component installed on the machine with the IP address

You can also add other index action parameters to this action, for example to make the new database internal. For details, refer to the IDOL Server Reference.
