Trigger Traveler defrag command from a running server

Currently you either have to stop and start the Traveler server with the -defrag option. This is a manual process that cannot be automated.

The configurable interval on the other side will do the defrag any time you start the server when the interval has been reached. That might happen also for an unplaned restart during the day. So many customers can't use it.

Having the defrag command work for a running server would allow easy scheduling.

The command should do something similar to this logic.

  1. tell traveler shutdown

  2. load traveler -defrag

Domino supports the restart command for tasks like this:

restart task traveler

But this would not be the right way to go because Traveler needs the "shutdown" command.
And we would still need to trigger the defrag

    What about using the tell traveler dbmaint command to set an interval for the derby database to be defragged? Or you can run it to cause a defrag on the next restart. See

    Until we get this option I do this with a text file and with a program document:


    -c "< command.txt"

    Where I put the following commands in the text file

    te traveler q

    te http q

    lo traveler -defrag
