Used with the Link Manager functionality.
This variable controls link extraction from previously indexed documents during a rebuild. If set to TRUE, it configures Link Manager to extract links from documents as they are indexed into the system during a rebuild. This is the default setting.
If set to FALSE, this prevents Link Manager from extracting links from documents as they are indexed into the system during a rebuild.
Because Link Manager does all of its work during the indexing cycle, it will increase the amount of time required to index documents and to rebuild collections.
However, the time taken may not be noticeable since most of the time is spent indexing the document into the collection. Although, the amount of time required does depend on the type and size of the documents involved. That is, if the file must be converted, this requires more time than text-based (HTML) files.
