7.4 Net Folder File Content Indexing Overview

Figure 7-2 File Content Indexing



For content indexing, Filr first requests copies of all of the files contained in the Net Folder.

After a file is copied to the Filr appliance, up to the first 1.1 MB of file content is extracted by Stellent, the technology that provides HTML rendering of file content in Filr.

Filr then sends the extracted content to each Search appliance for content indexing.

IMPORTANT:Content indexing is powerful and useful functionality. It is also very CPU- and IO-intensive because each file is processed separately.

It is therefore important to carefully consider which Net Folders contain files that organization members must be able to search for specific content.
