I have a SharePoint farm with:
3 Front end servers (load balanced)
1 app server
2 Index servers
2 Sql servers (cluseter 1 active 1 passive)
24 GB memory, 6 cores, 2ghz, D drive has 1 TB disk (search index is stored here)
As of today there is ca. 12 million items beeing crawled and it takes 9.5 items per second
Full crawl was set up on the farm but it took 8+ days to finish. So we did the next best thing and set it to incrimental.
There are also 96 craw rules. the vast majority of theese are Exclusion rules but there are also 10 inclusion rules.
If we want to set it to Full Crawl what do i do to make it finish in a few hours instead of few days?
