Maximum space requirements for the Log Archive Temporary Index processing is 32 Gigabits per indexing process. By default, we start one indexing process per CPU core. If you have 4 instances of the Log Archive Indexer processes, you could need up to 128 Gigabits of storage in the location that temporary indexing resides.

  • By default index processing takes place within the Log Archive Volume.
  • There are situations, either due to performance or drive space concerns, that could require the temporary index processing is moved to another location in the file system. For steps on moving your temporary index processing to another location, please refer to NETIQKB72195.
