Planning Your Indexing Service

When designing an indexing site, the first question that arises is how much storage space will be needed. The minimum disk space allocated should be at least 30 percent of the size of your corpus, and 40 percent is better. During a master merge, the Indexing Service can temporarily need up to 45 percent of the corpus size.

Depending on the filters used to index a group of documents, the actual size of the indexes might be less than the standard 30 percent. For example, if you write a filter for indexing large documents (such as large image files), you can limit indexing to the first few hundred bytes (about all you need to get the header information), thus reducing the amount of space needed for the index.
