has used the Global
Text Retrieval (GTR) engine since Domino 5.0.3 and has been the default
full-text index (FTI) engine for individual database full-text indexing
since Domino 5.0.5.
The GTR was developed at IBM and utilizes n-gram
language processing concepts to provide efficient approximate matching.
Creating the Full-text Index
There are only two means of creating an FTI for an individual database,
from the Full Text tab of the database properties dialogue or from the
Server Administration panel available under the Files tab of the Domino
Administrator client. Using either of these means sets a bit property
within the database to indicate the creation of an index.
The indexing rate for text is approximately 300-450 MB per hour, and is
highly dependent on the host operating system environment, memory, and
processing speed. With this rate of indexing, creating an index of
a database in the 600MB to 1.2GB range will take an estimated hour of time
