19.4 Controlling Maximum Document Conversion Size and Time

By default, the POA sends all attached documents for HTML conversion for indexing, regardless of the size of the document, and by default, the POA waits as long as 10 minutes to receive the HTML version.

You control the maximum document conversion size and time using startup switches in the POA startup file. After you edit the POA startup file, you must restart the POA in order to put the changes into effect.

Use the --dvamaxsize switch to restrict the size of documents that it sends for conversion. Set the --dvamaxsize switch to the maximum document size in kilobytes. For example, you would use 20480 for 20 MB.

Use the --dvamaxtime switch to change the amount of time the POA waits for the HTML version. Set the --dvamaxtime switch to the number of seconds that you want the POA wait. The default is 600 seconds.
