BI4 Platform Search application

Hi,

We are on BI4 platform. Recently we found that PlatformSearchData folder in the server consumes a lot of disk space(the application used 15gb disk space).

We are using default settings for current system. Im reading some suggestions from SAP community and BOB forum. I can rebuilt index and custermise settings to free some space.

The problem I have now is when I go to CMC->applications>Platform Search Application and right click properties. It took long time to load the properties page(I waited around 30mins, it still showed loading).

my first question is why it takes so long time to load the properties page(is it because scanning all indexes in the folder)?

second question is can I go the acutall folder(PlatformSearchData ->Backup or Lucene Index Engine to delete the files)?

Thanks in advance.

Youqin

    The properties page take long time because of some deadlocks that may occur.

    Follow the steps in note 1726392 - Number of Indexed Documents always 0 in Platform Search
    Application
    to unlock the deadlocks.

    The note 1640934 - How to safely use Platform Search Service in BI 4.0
    without overloading the server?
    would help you further.
