i'm working with a big assets project, where the client has some folders with thousands of assets, when it tries to review the folder content and sort by name for example, I'm seeing a warn message log due to traversal query.
Basically it is the list view and then sort by name.
The query is
SQL2: select [jcr:path], [jcr:score], * from [nt:base] as a where ischildnode(a, '/content/dam/folder') order by lower(name(a)) desc
xpath: /jcr:root/content/folder/* order by fn:lower-case(fn:name()) descending
I tried to create a new index under nt:base with
.........name = "function*lower*@:name"
.........ordered = true
.........type = "String"
but it doesn't work, i mean i generated the index then used the query performance tool, but the index is not used and I still see the message in the log.
any help is welcome!

Please refer the detail discussion here :
One more point instead of putting thousands of assets in lesser number of folders , you could reorganize your AEM folder structure with multiple subfolders based category like products or brands.
But before reorganize, we need to review our backend logic incase if we have defined any path like /content/dam/<project-name>/brands in Java classes, you need to inform stakeholders also.
Thank you for you quick response.
yes, that was my first recommendation, i mean create subfolders, but those are special folders for them and they need it without subfolders.
this is OOTB functionality it is the code that is executed when you try to sort assets by name.
In that resolved ticket you could see we all faced this type of issue while performing the activity like opening the DAM folder, asset move operation.
To fix the issue we have raised the day care ticket with adobe and made necessary change as per Adobe's input.
Hope this will help.
I think it is not the same problem, here the index must go through the order by clause, it is not the same situation. For me it is not the correct answer. And increasing the limit on memory can be problematic
@kautuk_sahni i think this is not the correct answer. I'm asking about the index and not a workaround
Please accept my apology for the inconvenience.
I can understand the problem is different here but I was talking about the approach.
All of us encountered traversal query issue with different activities like accessing of DAM folder, asset move operation.
So we raised day care/support ticket with Adobe and made necessary change as per Adobe's input.
