  • Question about Index Size
    Posted: 12-03-2019, 8:51 AM

    Hello All,

    Is there a way to reduce Index Size(Version 2) without lossing backup data? Because one of my Index Size has 450GB and it keep growing.

    Best Regards.

    Don't believe so. As you have probably already know the Indexing V2 is a database, whereas Indexing V1 was cache.  The workaround to address any problems size may cause was to use Index Load Balancing to distribute between MA's, but that doesn't reduce the size.

    Do you happen to know if it is growing in size because the number of objects protected is growing abnormally and/or because retention has not been met?

    Hello Anthony,

    Thank you for the answer.

    I don't think it's an abnormal size, but we're thinking about how to manage it. Because we bought a separate 750GB SSD disk for the Index and only the Index is on it. I believe, In this case we need to buy a higher capacity SSD disk for the Index.

    Best Regards.

    Hi Omer,

    Yes it maybe possible but there can be exception. We will have to take a look at the enviornment. Can you please raise an escalation and ask them to forward it to 'Satya Bhukar'. Also mention which index  is 450GB in the escalation.
