Hi Stephen,

Have you tried running:

 [dspace]/bin/dsrun org.dspace.browse.ItemCounter

Run this periodically (e.g. Every hour) via cron.

Hello all, We have enabled the collection counters in dspace that show how many submissions are in each collection.  In order for that number to update after someone makes a new submission, not only does index-update have to be run (which is done nightly via a cron job) but tomcat has to be restarted.  I don’t want to restart tomcat via a cron job because of the possibility of disconnecting users.  Does anyone know another way?
Thank you
