Export IDX Documents from IDOL Server
You can send a DREEXPORTIDX action (case sensitive) from your Web browser to export IDX documents from one or more IDOL server databases. (Use DREEXPORTXML to export XML documents.) Use the following syntax:
http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREEXPORTIDX?FileName=fileName&Compress=true|fals&DatabaseMatch=databaseCSV&BatchSize=size&MinDate=minDate&MaxDate=maxDate
where,
 
The IDOL server index port (the value of IndexPort in the IDOL server configuration file [Server] section).
The path to the location where you store the IDX files to export. Double-byte filenames are acceptable. The path must include a basic file name, which IDOL server postfixes with incremental numbers and an appropriate extension. If you do not specify a file name IDOL server exports the files to the current working directory (IDOLserver\IDOL\content), and IDOL server creates a filename in the format AUTN-IDX-EXPORT-host-port-date-time-incrementalNumber.extension.
Whether to compress the exported files. Set Compress to false if you do not want to compress the files.
If you do not want to export documents from all IDOL server databases, enter one or more databases to restrict the export to. If you want to specify multiple databases, separate them with plus symbols, commas or spaces (there must be no space before or after plus symbols or commas).
The maximum number of document sections that you want to export to one IDX file. The default value is 100,000 sections.
 
Example 1:
http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREEXPORTIDX?FileName=/export/data/backup/output&Compress=true&DatabaseMatch=News,Archive&BatchSize=1000&mindate=01/01/2003&maxdate=01/01/2004
In this example, IDOL server exports all IDX documents that have dates between the first of January 2003 and the first of January 2004. It exports from the News and Archive databases to a series of compressed files in the /export/data/backup directory. It names the files created in this directory output-0.idx.gz, output-1.idx.gz and so on.
Example 2:
http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREEXPORTIDX?
In this example, IDOL server exports all IDX documents to a series of compressed files in the IDOL server's current working directory (IDOLserver\IDOL\content). It names the files created in this directory AUTN-IDX-EXPORT-12.04.2005-02.15.41-0.idx.gz, AUTN-IDX-EXPORT-12.04.2005-02.15.41-1.idx.gz and so on.
 
NOTE IDOL server does not split multiple section documents across chunks, so the specified BatchSize is not used exactly if it splits a multiple section document.
NOTE You do not need to uncompress compressed IDX files before indexing them. For example, the action DREADD?output-0.idx.gz indexes the output-0.idx.gz file correctly without you having to uncompress the file first.
