Find Indexer in Load Balanced environment


In a Load Balanced environment, has anyone come across configuring the Web servers to no run the index job?

I've noticed that when the EPiServerFind Index Queue gets high in the tblBigTable (DDS), all servers start trying to index this content.  I can't see anything in the configuration for disabling this.

Any ideas?

Hi Simon,

in episerver.config you can disable the schedule jobs.


<episerver xmlns="http://EPiServer.Configuration.EPiServerSection">
enableScheduler="false" />

Usually we set enableScheduler to false for all public facing websites and true for the admin server.

The Index queue does not get affected by the scheduler. However, the indexing queue has been improved in recent versions of Episerver Find. Which version are you running?

Thanks Daniel - its not the scheduled job, but the on going indexing on Publish / Save of content.  Cheers for the suggestion though.

@Per, we got to the bottom of the issue which was an item failing to index, but then the contents of tblBigTable (DDS) had a lot of unindexed items which then in turn caused some processes to be locked.

I can see that the new version of Find has its own index item table, but for now we have solved this issue.
