    How to disable Examine


    Is there a setting that I can disable the Examine module? Because the site has >10000 pages and I don't need the search in backend, I want to disable the Examine indexing so that I can optimze as much as possible. Is it enough to remove the ExamineIndexProviders and ExamineSearchProviders in ExamineSettings.config?

    To deactivate examine in umbraco

    Just go to web.config and comment the two references to examine in the configSections.

    Problem solve.

    You should certainly not disable Examine. Examine is the media cache, if you disable it then you media will be ultra slow and consume a bunch of memory. This question has been previously asked, you can read about it here:

    Examine/Lucene is not going to slow your site down. Once the indexes are built, they will stay up to date with your data, you don't have to do anything else. The only time your site could be affected by performance from Examine/Lucene is if you have tons of indexes and have some N+1 logic for custom event handlers when writing to the indexes and you are publishing all of the time.

    It's also worth noting that the latest versions of Examine and the Umbraco core are better optimized and reliable for Lucene/Examine than older versions.

    I am using umbraco 8.9, I can not find examine in my installation or in web.config But when I restart my site I wat for 10-20 minutes for site to begin. In log files there are thousands of same errors like this:

    @MessageTemplate Cannot index queue items, the index is currently locked SourceContext Umbraco.Examine.UmbracoMemberIndex
