First of all I have created a new web application inside my SharePoint 2013. Then I defined the following :-
From managed services I have created a new search service named "MySearch" and I defined the following URL ...://myapplication as the crawl source.
At First I have defined the crawl setting to perform incremental crawl each 4 hours, then I changed the crawl type to be continuous crawl.
Currently I have the following questions :-
I have noted that SP automatically created a new search service named "local Sharepoint sites". So why SP automatically created this service,?
and if in the future the two search services (local SP sites and MySearch) contained the same crawl source , will this cause unnecessary and redundant search processing to happen ?
Where I should define my application URL as a crawl source? Inside the “Local SharePoint sites” or inside the search service which I have created "MySearch"?
As I changed the crawl type from incremental to continues . Currently I have both continues crawl enabled and incremental crawl enabled ? So how I can disable incremental crawl (the incremental crawl button is unchecked but the incremental crawl drop down list still define the interval of 4 hours)?
Will defining continuous crawl have some performance drawbacks?
And in case I define continuous crawl, is there any reason to define incremental or full crawl settings to take place at any time ?
If I define ...//sharepointdev/ as a crawl source. Does it make any difference if I add something such as ...//sharepointdev:4444 or ...//sharepointdev/subsite1 to the crawl source table inside the same search service ?
Thanks in advance for any help
