Starts merging the forests of the database, subject to specified
options. For any options that are not specified, their default values
are used, not the values that are in the configuration files.
for this merge. The default value is
Fragments with a timestamp of this or newer are not garbage collected
during this merge.
A negative value means the timestamp is relative to the time the merge
starts, at ten million ticks per second.
For example, -6000000000 means ten minutes before the merge.
The default is 0, which means not specifying a timestamp.
The maximum allowable size, in megabytes, of a resultant stand. The
default value is 32768 (32G). A value of 0 means there is no limit. It is
possible for a stand larger than the merge-max-size to merge if
the stand has enough deleted fragments to trigger the merge min ratio;
in this case, MarkLogic will do a single-stand merge, merging out the
deleted fragments (even if the resulting stand is larger than the
merge-max-size value specified).
The CPU scheduler priority for the merge ("normal" or "lower").
If any forests in the database have a single stand and this parameter
is false, do not merge them. The default is true.
Specifies the IDs of the forests in which to perform merges.
Each forest ID
is of type
The default is to merge all of the forests in the database.
Performs a merge on my-forest and my-other-forest. If a stand
created by this merge would be greater than 500 megabytes, the merge
will be limited and not all stands will be merged (as many as can be
merged under 500 MB will be merged). If my-forest or my-other-forest
have only one stand, they will not be merged. Any fragments with
timestamp 8273 or newer will not be garbage collected.
