Show Deletion Logging Status of Database

How can I find out, whether a database has deletion logging activated?

Please make it visible in one or all ways:

  • sh database db.nsf -> DL Status
  • start delete.log with a list of logged databases
  • list logged databases with show server
  • ...

If I missed an already existent way, please add to the documentation.

Thank you

    @Daniel Nashed: I did not have the time yet to test either nshdbcat with DL nor nshdellog, but I am aware of these. Thanks for your hard and good work. I like the idea of those. I was so free to link nshdellog on our blog.

    Also agree with your comments concerning LotusScript and Admin Client.

    We need to be able to show the status and also set the status via Lotus Script etc.
    I wrote a tool (C-API) that can query and set the status and also my nshdbcat (extended database catalog) shows it. But I would wish there would be a way to see it in:

    - admin client

    - database properties

    - from Lotus Script

    Also setting it right now is only possible via compact task.
    Having it controllable via admin client would be helpful!

    By the way, I have a free tool nshdellog database which allows you to annotate and manage delete.log files.
