Exclude Project Files From SyncSubmitted by Gener Joseph Tomas
Ignoring files above save limit of 10000 files using .dominoignore
When you start a Run or launch a Workspace, Domino copies your project files to a Domino execution. When working with large volumes of data, this presents the following potential issues:
- By default, you can store 10,000 files in a Domino project and you might exceed the limit.
- By default, you can only transfer individual files that are 8GB to and from your Domino project files, and you might exceed the limit.
- The time required to transfer data to and from the Domino executions is proportional to the size of the data. It can take a long time if the size of the data is large, which can lead to long startup and shutdown times for Workspaces, Jobs, Apps, and Launchers.
