Frequency of asset indexer?


iRAM Administrator (3152146135) | asked Jul 22 '10, 7:16 a.m.
What is the frequency of asset index rebuild? There is no configuration setting for this, so we are not sure. Is it like that whenever any new asset is submitted or any asset is updated index start rebuilding ?

There is no periodic asset index REBUILD. That can only be requested
explicitly from the Tools page or by deleting the index or someone
corrupting it on the disk or by not letting it finish the very first time.

The delta indexer is set to one minute intervals. Every minute it checks
to see if there were any changed/created assets. There isn't a
performance hit because if there are no changes then this completes in
milliseconds. Otherwise it will then index just the new or changed assets.

This is the best setting for it since you don't want users to have to
wait very long before their changes show up. This is an advanced
configuration setting.

On my RAM instance, I have the index builder set to 1 mins but I am not seeing updates properly. I just modified 25 assets (changes to asset type and category values). On each specific asset if I drill into them I can see the updated values but if I perform a query or use the filters, the result set is still showing the old asset type value. It's now been an hour and a half.

How can I get the query result list to display the correct data?

You can check the indexer status from
Administration -> Tools -> View job status
Do you see any jobs running?

It sounds like the asset indexer may not be running. If you submit a new asset does it show up in the search results? You may need to open a defect and attach the ramDebug.log, ramJobServerDebug.log, indexJobServerSystemErrLog.txt and indexJobServerSystemOutLog.txt log files.
