Compact system databases on-line

It's very important to have ability to compact system databases like log.nsf or domlog.nsf online.

    Compact is not only for reclaiming diskspace. Also ODS upgrade, compression, etc. The mail problem after upgrading a Domino server, is to upgrade systemdatabases' ODS. You always have to do that OFFLINE.

    Why running compact at all for system databases? Disk space should be reused automatically by reusing whitespace within the file. Avoid growing and shrinking the file size on disk as this is causeing fragmentation.
