Improving Bulk Indexing Process/Timeline in Production

Improving Bulk Indexing Process/Timeline in Production

Whenever there is a need to re-index Windchill content, the PTC recommended way is to drop all indexed data from Windchill & SOLR and re-initiate indexing. Depending on data size, this may take days. For us it takes 60 hours to re-index all data from start to end on a QA/Pre-PROD environment.

 

However, in Production, this takes even longer (1 WEEK) because business users are modifying data and any change on objects/lifecycle state changes re-triggers indexing on same data set multiple times. The indexer is not designed to prioritize the indexing of all data initially when rebuilding index from scratch. Rather it processes data marked as stale, that was already indexed earlier. This leads to a very long indexing time for pending objects and affects the business users productivity for a long time. So this is not really a performance issue with indexing, but the way it prioritizes what to index when re-building data from scratch.
