We have 2 search heads, one is a lab box, so lower performance 4 way 8gig ram, but very few people use it. The other is a 16 way box. Our primary search head does no indexing locally at all, the lab box does some, (10,000 events/day). For some reason, the lab box seems REAL slow when doing searches, system load/memory is all good.
The only thing I have found in the logs is the following: From Lab box 12-01-2010 23:48:57.669 WARN DistributedBundleReplicationManager - bundle replication to 8 peer(s) took too long (227349ms), bundle file size=143900KB
From production: 12-01-2010 19:29:16.536 WARN DistributedBundleReplicationManager - bundle replication to 10 peer(s) took too long (10474ms), bundle file size=4130KB
I can't find any real reference to DistributedBundleReplicationManager in any documentation. The 'bundle replication" is taking a lot longer, and I am wondering if the "bundle file size" is making the one system slower than the other.
