Hello,

I would like to know witch tsidx files was created before I increase the parameter "tsidxWritingLevel" form 1 to 3.

is there any way to know the "tsidxWritingLevel" of the tsxidx files in a bucket?

Thanks

Christian

AFAIK, only the indexer knows for sure.  You can make an educated guess by checking the creation date of the bucket and comparing it to when the setting was changed.

If the tsidxWritingLevel setting is currently 1 then all buckets are at level 1.  Only after you change the setting will new buckets be created at the new level.

Hello,

Yes, I know it. My question is how to check if an existing tsidxfile was created before or after the modification of "tsidxWritingLevel".

Best Regards

Christian
