To Index or Not To Index or How To Index
I was wondering if someone knows a better way to explain how different indexes
work. Such as, is it better to have an index with int type or char or varchar
etc? Is it better to have composite indexes or indexes with individual columns?
How does optimizer handle different indexes and what can we do help it? Indexes
are very efficient most of the time but they can be quite detrimental to
server's performance, if abused. Perhaps you know of a good article about
indexing that you could share with us. Or, perhaps Mr. Rob Verschoor would like
to issue an article in his very usefu...index server not indexing
Ok, so I want to add a catalog to the index server. I can add the new catalog, I then add a directory to this catalog. I restart the index server, and merge the index. If I click the index server, in mmc, it shows 0 documents for everything. Everything meaning documents to index, total docs, docs defered for indexing and so on.
I've tried this on vista as well as on win2003 and the same result is obtained, no documents are indexed. In win2003 I can index document, but ONLY the ones in the default catalog, if I paste some documents there they get indexed.
So, what have I don...Clustered Index on Indexed View from ADO.NET
I have a clustered index on an indexed view in sql server 2000. When I do a simple select in query anaylser from this view I can see from the execution plan in profiler that the clustered index was used to return the data, hence improving performance of the underlying select(this is why I am using the indexed view). However, if I run the query from an asp.net page using the sql provider I can see the call in profiler but the clustered index is not used, hence reducing the performance of the call considerably.If anyone has experienced this please let me know.Cheers Niall

I've indexed some documents in index server. I specify the catalog and folder in my query, see below. My problem is that the query never returns any result.
I've indexed a lot of different folder och even indexed c in my despair:.On a total I have 85289 docs indexed if I look in the Mmc, but can't get one single document returned. One funny thing is that I can't set the index to inherit the settings from the webserver, if I choose properties. I can select it and save it, but when I go back, everything is set as before. I'm guessing this has something to do with...To Index or not to Index (that is the question...)
I'd like to clear up an assumption I have.
If I have a Primary Key Constraint on a Table I assume that I will not need
to create an Index on the field(s) of the constraint as the action of
creating the primary key constraint produces what is the equivalent of an
Index (be the constraint clustered or not).
Is this the case?

I used to code in classic ASP and it was quite easy to set up a catalog and then re-use my previous paging code to point to the new catalog. I could have keyword search using Index Server set up and running in about one hour tops.
With ASP.NET, I'm not involved in setting up keyword search, but my team of developers routinely take anywhere from 4-10 hours to set up Index Server. It seems there has to be a better way. They indicate it is due to the master pages and configuration. But seriously...isn't ASP.NET suppsoed to make things easier? Why wou...Getting the contents of index.cgi instead of executed index.cgi
I trying to rebuild a failed server that was running Bugzilla 4.2.5.
(I have DB backups from 4.2.5). I have installed everything
and when I hit the main page I'm getting the contents of index.cgi
instead of executed index.cgi. This is a Windows installation
and I added the registry entry for .cgi but for some reason it will
not execute it but instead displays the content of the index.cgi
How can I debug this?
Thanks for any help.
...PLEASE HELP! w/Index Server, Indexing service query
I have set up indexing service via Index Server on my local machine. I have successfully created the catalog, set up the document directory and indexed the documents within my directory. I am having problems with the query not returning the document properties that I would like to see (such as DocTitle, DocAuthor, etc.) Everything works fine, except for the fact that the result set is not returning the data fields that I need. The search works great (as far as I can tell).

Can anyone suggest why I would have the following set of indices upon a

index3 nonclustered field,field2,field4
The table is one into which a lot of inserts are done, so I would have
thought that index2 & 3 would be unncessary since they're
(1) already in the clustered index and
(2) any inserts would triple the amount of index updates that are
