The smency.nsf file contains the pattern files, anti-spam rules, anti-virus engine, anti-spam engine, etc. Considering that pattern files are not big, the size of the smency.nsf file normally is within the range of 50 MB.
To resolve this issue, run either of the following commands on the Domino console:
- "Load compact smd\smency.nsf -b"
This command uses in-place compacting and recovers unused space without reducing the file size, unless there is a pending structural change to a database, in which case copy-style compacting occurs.We recommend using this method of compacting.
- "Load compact smd\smency.nsf -B"
This option uses in-place compacting, recovers unused space and reduces file size, unless there is a pending structural change in which case copy-style compacting occurs.After enabling transaction logging, perform full database backups after compacting is completed.
