Getting Data In

Indexing Slow


Hi Team,

My indexing queue is reaching 90-98% also we have checked the cpu utilization in every indexers ( 30 to 40%) cpu.
Sometimes the data flow is faster and suddenly it becoming slow only from 3 application servers rest of all the servers data flowing faster.

We have not mentioned any configurations in server.conf for indexing queue

environment - "windows servers" 3 indexers (clustering), 1 master.

Hi there,
What's the daily data volume on your platform ? and do you have data ack enabled for forwarders ?

And what kind of storage do these windows servers use?

PS: any particular reason you're running indexers on windows? I believe in general Linux is preferred, also for performance reasons?
