Event Log - Event ID 3078 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an event id 3078 in my event log on my portal server. It reads:

    "The search service stopped the filter daemon because it was consuming too
    many resources. A new daemon will automatically be started, and no user
    action is required."

    What exactly does this event mean? Should I be concerned about this event?

    Thanks

  • I decided to log the resolution to this error in case someone else comes across it. Here is what I came up with:

     

    SharePoint Portal Server has a limit to the amount of text data that it can filter from

    a single document. This limit applies only to the text in the document. It does not

    apply to graphics or any other type of content. By default, the limit is 64 KB of text

    in a single document. If a document has more text than the limit, SharePoint Portal

    Server stops the indexing process, considers the document indexed, and moves on

    to the next document.

     

    The resolution is:

    SharePoint Portal Server has a registry value that limits the maximum file size that

    it will crawl. The registry value is called Max Download Size and is located in the

    HKLM/Software/Microsoft/SPS Search/Gathering Manager key. By default, the entry

    for this registry value is set at 16 MB. SharePoint Portal Server also has a registry entry

    that defines how many times larger the file can be than the text. This registry value is

    contained in the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/SPS Search/Gathering Manager/Max Grow

    Factor key. By default, this value is set at four. This means that the text in a file can be

    only up to four times larger than the file size.

     

    If anyone has anymore info please feel free to reply.
