Time required to rebuild a set of indexes
BMC recommends that you perform bulk indexing during off-peak hours, such as during a maintenance window.
Do not rebuild indexes during normal production hours. Because re-indexing rebuilds your entire set of FTS indexes from scratch, it can take a long time, depending on the following factors:
- The number of fields selected for full text search
- The amount of data in each field indexed for FTS in each AR System request
- The system load
