Search Indexing performance limitation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I have a Search Server 2010 which should indexing our productive Fileserver (2TB). But my boss have objection that the performance of the fileserver will be too bad for normal working when the indexing is running. Is this possible?

    If so, is there any possibility to say that the indexing job have some CPU and RAM limitations on the Fileserver? For example the search indexing (crawl job) should only use 20% of the CPU of the fileserver.

    Best regards from Switzerland

  • You can specify limits in the crawl rules to say instead of crawling continuously, to crawl an item every 5 seconds or whatever you want to set it at.  Obviously the longer duration you give the less it will impact the box its crawling, but it will also take longer so will have to work out the number of items vs the time you have to crawl.

  • Thanks for your answer.

    In my search service application, I only have the following options in the "Add Crawl Rule" menue:

    - Path
    - Crawl Configuration
    - Specify Authentication

    none of these options seems to be the correct. Could you explain it more precise for me?

    Thanks alot!
