Crawling and indexing are I/O and CPU intensive; adding more machines increases the crawl/index throughput linearly.

However, You should note that adding more crawlers may not help if :

  • Crawl rate is low due to IOPS bottlenecks in the search crawl subsystem.

  • Crawl rate is low due to slow repository responsiveness.
