I have a question regarding size of index partition. My Search Application Topology looks like that:

Search Application Topology

Checking the status of my SSA shows everything in Active State, nothing degraded.

Status SSA

But the Size of the index is different. Does anybody know, why? Here's a screenshot of Primary and Replica Index Content/Size of both WFE Servers. Each Folder "SPSearchService" contain the subfolders "PrimaryIndex" and "ReplicaIndex".

Index Partitions of both WFEs

I thought the index on both servers have to be the same size?

Edit: I generated a report for a full overview:

  • I decided to clear the Index (Index Reset) and to fully crawl all the content. After that I hope to see if merging will work again or if the problem persists... – Fabian Nov 3 '15 at 12:16

I do not know what caused this issue (once I was out of disk space, maybe this caused the fail in merging the index), but I could fix it.

First I did an Index Reset (in Search Administration) and checked, if the index files on my servers are deleted. Then I started full crawling on every content source I have.

Now the ratio of my index components looks much healthier:
