How to set the delay time from when a file updates until Index Manager updates the index.
Setting the index delay
- In Index Manager Settings, open the Advanced tab for the relevant index.
- Enter a value in the Index delay field.
- Select Save.
What this setting does
The index delay determines the number of seconds it takes from when a file updates until Index Manager updates the index accordingly.
In an archive with much I/O it may be a good idea to increase the default setting of three seconds to avoid constant rewriting of the index. Decreasing the delay will create more index fragmentation (and result in longer search time) while increasing it will extend the time before file changes are visible and searchable.
