Special thanks to Volker Rast at World Bank for supplying this notes.ini setting.
The log file events field by default is set to 40,000 characters. That's too large to fit in a variable in Lotus script to do any meaningful processing. There's a workaround by using an @Evaluate to pull in the full text field and then split it up into two variables, but that adds a huge amount of time to processing the log. It's much simpler to add the proper log setting in the NOTES.INI, changing the size to 20,000 or 30,000 characters (e.g., LOG=LOG.NSF,1,0,7,20000). Here is the description of the INI from the administration help db:
