Hi ,

 

I followed this article, https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/experience-manager/kb/lucene-index-directory-growth.html
which says to re-index after the purge.
So does the reindex needs to be done after every purge or how frequently the reindexing needs to be done to reduce the size of indexes?

Hello,

Full reindexing is not recommended unless advised by Adobe Support. Few cases where it could be necessary:

  • Corrupt nodes exist under an index.
  • The index is out of sync with the rest of the repository due to some issues in Oak.
  • The index definition has been updated with new configurations.  Reindexing in this circumstance should be done during a maintenance window to avoid affecting users on the system.
