Number of Documents in Cabinet

I would like the ability to find out how many documents are being stored in each cabinet.  I can see how much storage is being utilized in cabinets, but not the number of documents.  I recently set up ndMirror, and have no way to reconcile the number of documents in the cabinet with the number of documents synced with ndMirror.

Marcia: 

In ndMirror 1.1 on the cabinet page you can tell from the cabinet page if a sync has completed. If it has, then the number of documents shown there is the total number as of that sync in the cabinet. This is constantly changing, so the next sync ndMirror will start another series of syncs (it could take more than one day if you added several tens of thousands of documents) until they complete. Once they do, that number will be updated with the new date.

In the web, while there isn't an easy way to do this, an advanced search that includes all the document types gets a pretty accurate number of the total documents on the system like this one here:

Don, I agree with Marcia.

It'd be great if we could get this (even if part of the "cabinet storage" calculation on the cabinet admin page.)

I am concerned though why my cabinet storage (cabinet admin) shows about 10% more storage consumed than that in ndMirror shows after sync complete. Can you please explain this.

Cheers,

Neil.

@neil, The cabinet storage number is a billing number and it represents an additional 10% added to the storage representing all the other data being stored like profile tables and whatnot. That's my understanding.

My response to Marcia is only to illuminate an aspect of ndMirror, not to indicate there isn't a need for a number that represents the document total. My focus (as you may know) is ndOffice and ndMirror.

Don, can you clarify whether the search for all document types you suggested would take into account multiple versions of a document?  For example, if there are 10 versions of a document, would the search results count that as 1 document, or 10?

In ND, one document has many versions. When you search for a document, you find the document that contains (in ND storage) all the versions. The same is true of ndMirror, we only count official versions whether you download the others or not.
