Scheduling an Index Update

    Hi Scott,

    It is currently not possible to schedule an index update run in the Management Console/Asset Processing Tool.

    By configuring the Asset Processing Tool with a low amount of threads (f.e.just 1 or 2 threads) and some milliseconds pause (f.e. 200 milliseconds) you can have the index update run as a background process, hardly affecting the overall performance of the system.

    You could simply try this with these example settings and start the update. Just let it run for a few minutes and monitor the processing queue while it is running to see if the processing queue stays low.
    You can stop the update process in the running processes section and try a different amount of threads and milliseconds pause if needed and try again. Less threads means more is available for other uses. More milliseconds pause means more resources stay available for other processes.

    Tip: don't use the "run exclusive" checkbox, for it will make the update index run exclusive and block other processes as long as it is running.
