If you notice that search performance in Novell Vibe is becoming slower over time, you might want to optimize your Lucene index.
For a medium to large Vibe system, it is recommended that you run the optimization once a week. You should run the optimization during off hours or on weekends when the Vibe system is not being heavily used.
Optimizing the Lucene index does not repair a damaged or out-of-date index. To repair a damaged or out-of-date index, you must rebuild the index, as described in Section 24.4, Rebuilding the Lucene Index.
To optimize the Lucene index:
Log in to the Vibe site as the Vibe administrator.
Click theicon in the upper right corner of the page.
Under, click .
(Conditional) If you have multiple Lucene indexes, select the indexes that you want to optimize.
Selectif you want to run the optimization right now.
Select, then specify the days and times that you want the optimization to occur.
