When enabled, database view indexes can be stored separately from database files in .ndx files.

Separate view indexes reduce the size of databases. They provide the following benefits for large databases:
  • Help avoid reaching the 64 GB database size limitation.
  • Allow faster database backup and restore.

Syntax: NIFNSFEnable=value

Description: Options for value are:
  • 0 - Do not store view indexes separately from databases.
  • 1 - Store view indexes separately from databases.

    By default, separate view indexes are stored in the Domino® data directory. Use the NIFBasePath setting to specify a different location.

    For information on how to enable for specific databases and more requirements, see the topic Moving views out of databases.
