​​Are there additional considerations for Lotus Notes migrations?


During Lotus Notes migrations, some data is processed and temporarily stored at the Source. Items are discovered in separate pages of 1,000 items. During processing:

  • Each page is processed in batches of 50 items or 5MB, whichever is less
  • Each item processed is temporarily stored in a temporary hidden folder in the mailbox
  • The entire temporary hidden folder is cleaned when one of the following occurs:
    • Each time GetPageOfItems is called (summaries, 1000 items/page)​
    • When it is done with GetFullItems on a batch (only the items in the batch)

The following should be considered when planning migrations because of the constant read, write, and delete actions during item processing: 

  • There will be consistently high disk input/output
  • Fluctuating free disk space
  • Verbose logging can cause excessive resource use as each action is logged
  • Without circular logging enabled, log files might use up free disk space quite rapidly​
