Index Cache - Best Practices
Recommendations for Maintaining the Index Cache
Follow these practices to obtain best results with index caching:
- Use a file system dedicated to index cache data, so that non-index data does not consume index cache capacity.
- Estimate your index cache space requirements with a margin of safety. Allocate a bit more space, rather than less.
If you are maintaining backward-compatible content indexes generated by a previous software version, the index cache folder may need more space.
- Do not locate the index cache on a compressed drive.
- For best performance, locate the index cache on an SSD (solid state drive) disk.
- For Windows, do not place the index cache folder directly under the software_installation_directory.
- For Unix, do not specify root as the index cache directory.
- When entering the complete index path:
- Do not exceed 200 characters
- Do not use the "!" character
- Do not use any Unicode characters
