Large Search

3 discussion posts
Not sure if I am doing this correctly. I am searching a file server that is probably over 10TB of files for files containing one of these phrases. I am using a large but simple RegEx expression such as this one..


After an hour or so the file count at the bottom is 62 files searched so far...
I've tried both Match Query options (not sure the performance Difference there)

What am I possibly doing wrong or is there a way to maxamize the performance?

Are you searching inside every file on the server or just certain ones? That 62 file count would only be the files it has looked inside, not the total number of files discovered.

Every file. I know it's going to take a long time. But seeing the progress is so slow it doesn't look right to me. It's at 66 now.
I imagine this would take a few years at this rate.

Just checking in to see if the search ever finished, or how far it ended up getting?

It's still going. Only 1396 files (4.837 GB) searched. I'm pretty sure my SAN isn't that slow. I am doing this directly from our file server.

Yeah, that definitely seems too slow to be normal. If you do normal non-RegEx query, is it any faster?
