I want to show all the documents in the farm and ofcourse I don't want to use powershell for that as this will impact performance. I want to use something using search index. I think we can do this using data view webpart but I am not sure how to achieve the document file type and document name of all the documents in the farm?

Is there a reason you cannot use FAST Search Center? – Hossein Aarabi Jun 27 '12 at 2:26
Do you want to iterate all indexed items and retrieve them? Or just documents? – Mikael Svenson Jun 27 '12 at 6:37
I want just documents will all the extensions right now.I don't want it to look like search view . I just want 1 webpart zone page and display the document properties , I am not sure if this is possible but I may also want to use pie charts utilizing that data. – EVIA Jun 27 '12 at 20:24

You can set a keyword query using the Search Core Results Web Part and the Fixed Query properties.

You will need to specify a property, but I'm pretty sure I've done some simple queries like 'isDocument=true' or you can specify the file extension if desired.
