Stop updating *.ntf files on Domino server by Statlog task

One of our customer found that all the *.ntf files on Domino server will be automatically updated at around 5:00 AM. When you list *.ntf under Domino data folder by dir command, you will find that last update time of these ntf files are set as 05:00 AM like following


2021/07/14 05:00 1,658,880 activity.ntf

2021/07/14 05:00 2,621,440 admin4.ntf

2021/07/14 05:00 524,288 alog4.ntf

2021/07/14 05:05 573,440 archlg50.ntf

2021/07/14 05:00 458,752 autosave.ntf

2021/07/14 05:05 351,232 billing.ntf

2021/07/14 05:00 6,553,600 bookmark.ntf

2021/07/14 05:00 458,752 busytime.ntf


On this Domino Server the following default parameter is set in the notes.ini to start Statlog task at 5:00 AM by default, after statlog task executed, all the ntf files are updated.




Since there is no real design change in these ntf files, there is no deed to update these ntf files.

The customer wish HCL could stop updating *.ntf files during the execution of statlog task.
