Domino Limits and the Wisdom of Crowds

Thu 24 Mar 2011, 12:11 PM

by Ben Langhinrichs
Back in 2004, in a post called Limits in Notes/Domino: Living document, I blogged about taking over the Domino Limits page that Mike Woolsey had maintained in the Business Partner forum for a long time before that (with his permission, of course). Since then, multiple versions have come along, and many, many people have helped shape this dynamic list of official and unofficial limits, maintained on our Domino Limits resource page. For a long time, it was the most popular single page on our website aside from this blog, until it was overtaken by the Web Editors resource page.

Thanks to the posting yesterday by Paul Farris, I was reminded of the importance of such a page. He had so many hits from re-posting the table from the Notes Help that his blog now shows the error message below. I don't know what his limits are, but clearly the interest is great. To prevent Paul's provider from having hissy fits, might I suggest you come over to the Domino Limits resource page, which has all these limits and many more. Every limit allows you to comment on it, so you can point out errors, or suggest additions and caveats. That is where the wisdom of crowds comes in. This is still a living document, as it was when Mike maintained it for years, and any new information you have to offer will help the whole community.

(Special thanks to my provider, The Turtle Partnership, for never shutting me down, no matter how I swamp their servers.)

Hi Ben,

Thanks. My current blog package has very limited bandwidth and keeps on exceeding this limit. Your Domino Limits resource page is much more useful than the help page that I posted.
