show status of "LargeSummary" flag in database properties

with the implemantation of "largeSummary" in Domino 9.0.1 FP8 the limit for the amount of Summary data per document has been elevated from 64k to 16MB.

To enable this feature for an existing database its ODS must be 52 or higher, and we need to run "compact -ls on <database>" at the console. The response then can be either, that large summary is now enabled, or that it already was enabled before running compact. There apparently ic no other way to tell, whether LargeSummary is enabled for a database.

Please include an additional field in the advanced database properties page showing the status of this flag

    Not a solution to this request, but there are 2 other ways to check the status:

    • The field $LargeSummary if the icon note in the database indicates if large summary is enabled (value will be "1").

    • The org.openntf.domino API (v1202) now has a method on the Database object to check if it's enabled: db.isLargeSummaryEnabled()
