Umbraco Version 188.8.131.52.000 articles/nodes.ASP.NET 2.0Windows 2003 IIS 6
Our _systemUmbracoIndexDontDelete folder is about 7,5gb and still growing, is this normal that this folder is that large?
No, sounds too big, though it depends on the amount of information indexed. Here's what you can do...
Delete the FILES in the _systemUmbracoIndexDontDelete folder (but leave the folder). Then go to /umbraco/reindex.aspx and click the refresh link a few times to get the reindexing going and to satisfy yourself it is moving along. Reindexing takes a very long time. You can continue to work on the site normally while it reindexes.
Hi Doug, thank you for your reply. I just deleted the contents of the _systemUmbracoIndexDontDelet, the folder is now 26mb in size. I will monitor the folder the upcoming day.
What could be the cause that the folder became this size?
For the document types that you have on your install do you have in total alot of properties?
Hi Ismail, for each document type we have around 20 properties and we have 4 major document types that are frequently used in the site.
The cause would be the Lucene indexer going nuts with Umbraco probably forcing it to some obscure endless loop. The size of the should never exceed a maximum of total nodes*3kb.
It's always safe to delete the contents of the folder. It's only used for internal searching (the search box in the upper left corner of the admin UI)
Thanks for the replys. The directory stays steady on 27mb so "problem" solved!
If we apply the rule Niels posted here it means your site has 9000+ nodes. Just curious how your performance is.
