19.1 Configuring Indexing

By default, the POA indexes messages and documents in the post office every 24 hours at 8:00 p.m. You can modify this interval if users need messages and documents indexed more quickly. To start indexing immediately, see Controlling Indexing.

To adjust the interval at which indexing occurs:

  1. In the GroupWise Administration Console, browse to and click the POA.

  2. Click the QuickFinder tab.

  3. Ensure Enable QuickFinder Indexing is selected. 

  4. In the Start QuickFinder Indexing field, specify the number of hours and minutes after midnight you want the POA to start its indexing cycle.

    For example, if you set QuickFinder Interval to 6 and Start QuickFinder Indexing to 1 hour, indexing cycles occurs at 1:00 a.m., 7:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m.

  5. Decrease the number of hours and minutes in the QuickFinder Interval field so indexing occurs more frequently.

    The interval is measured from the start of one indexing cycle to the next so that indexing starts at regular intervals, no matter how long each indexing session takes. By default, the start point of the cycle is 8:00 p.m.

    To avoid overloading the POA with indexing processing, a maximum of 500 items are indexed per database for each indexing cycle. If a very large number of messages are received regularly, you should configure the POA with frequent indexing cycles in order to get all messages indexed in a timely manner.

    To handle occasional heavy indexing requirements, you can start indexing manually. See Controlling Indexing.

  6. Click Save, and then click Close to return to the main Administration Console window.

Corresponding Startup Switches: You can also use the ‑‑qfinterval, ‑‑qfintervalinminute, ‑‑qfbaseoffset, and ‑‑qfbaseoffsetinminute switches in the POA startup file to regulate indexing.

POA Console: If the POA console is password protected as described in Configuring the POA Console, you can control indexing for the current POA session on the Configuration page. Under the General Settings heading, click QuickFinder Indexing. If indexing is currently in progress, you can check the status of the indexing process on the Scheduled Events page.
