With the advent of R5, we are informed that field sizes are no longer restricted by the 64k
rule. However, when creating agents which populate log documents, please remember that the more
information inserted into a single RTF field (> 64k) will result in the degrading performance
of your agent - may even cause your client/server to crash as it eats away at its Virtual Memory
Best to create a new log document for every Nth log entry. This greatly increases the agent's performance also allows for easy of log inspection. Example: A agent that was writing to populate a single log document still did not complete after two hours (over a 'long lunch' ?!). Creating multiple log documents for this same agent caused the agent to complete running in 2-3mins !
