    How long is a set_number active on the Aleph X-service?


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    How long is a set_number in X-serve find active/valid? 

    For instance: http://<server>/X?op=find&base=XXX&request=wbk=arb%20AND%20wbk=de* 

    which results in: 
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 
    - <find> 


    The result sets for searches performed by X-Service or other Aleph functions (as GUI search or OPAC) are stored in tables z05 (set) and z110 (result-set table) in VIR01. 

    The result sets are valid as long these tables are not dropped. 
    The tables are dropped by clear_vir01, which we recommend to execute at least on a weekly basis. 

    So it depends on the frequency of your clear_vir01 how long a set number is active.
