Distribute IDOL Content component Data Across Multiple Disks

If your IDOL data becomes too big to store on one volume (as the stored terms, references, content, and so on increase in size), you can store the data files across multiple disk partitions.

To distribute IDOL data

  1. Open the IDOL Content component configuration file in a text editor.

  2. Find the [Paths] section, or create one if it does not exist.

  3. Set the path parameters to the full paths to the directories where you want to store the corresponding part of the index. The following paths have the largest impact on performance:

    Parameter Description
    DynTermPath The directory that contains conceptual data.
    NodeTablePath The directory that contains content and structured data.
    StatusPath The directory that contains status files, and data that is streamed over the network before indexing.

    For a full list of available parameters, refer to the IDOL server Reference.

  4. Save and close the configuration file.

  5. Restart the IDOL Content component for your changes to take effect.
