I am using SharePoint 2013 foundation in dev environment. Suddenly I found that the crawl is stopped. The error message is showing

The crawl item threshold is exceeded.

I delete more than 500K documents to reduce the count less than 2M but still, it crawl is not started!

How to start crawl again!

  • Have you tried resetting the index and starting a full crawl?

Microsoft increase the threshold limit to 10 million but you have to apply June 2016 CU.

For SharePoint Foundation 2013, the maximum number of indexed items is 2 million items per index partition. For SharePoint Foundation 2013, the maximum number of indexed items is 2 million items per index partition, before applying the June 2016 Public Update. The June 2016 Public Update, increases this limit to 10 million items per index partition.

here is the KB: June 14, 2016, update for SharePoint Server 2013 (KB3115168)

Or you can add another index partition to the search.
