Limiting the Size of the Coveo index
Note: The Coveo Platform 7 features a self-optimizing index that no longer needs scheduling index optimization tasks (see About the Index Self-Optimization Process).
The following table describes different actions that you can take in the Administration Tool to limit the index size.
|Add Source page
Index > Sources and Collections page > Sources section, click Add to get to the Add Source page (see Adding a Source).
|When indexing Local/Network Files, SharePoint, Documentum, Exchange Crawler, Enterprise Vault or ODBC sources, do not index subfolders or subsites.||
|Do not generate a Quick View version of the indexed documents.||In the Options section, clear the Generate a cached HTML version of indexed documents check box.|
|Select a field set that contains no custom field or a limited number of pertinent custom fields.||In the Fields section, select the appropriate field set (see What Are Field Sets? and Adding or Modifying Custom Fields).|
||Add exclusion filters to exclude documents that do not need to be indexed.||
|Advanced page of Web sources
||Restrict crawling to one (only the main page) or two (the main page and pages directly linked to it) levels.||In the Crawling section, select Restrict crawling to X levels and enter the appropriate number of level (see Modifying Advanced Source Parameters).|
|Query History page (Reports > Query History)
Index History page (Reports > Index History)
|Export the reports to Excel, and then delete the repost history on the Coveo server.||
|Setting page (Logs > Settings)||Keep logs for less than 90 days.||In the Log Archive section, select the Keep logs for the last X days option and enter the appropriate number of days.|
Access the Converter Managers page (Configuration > Converters) and click Languages in the navigation panel on the left.
|Do not index documents if their language is not recognized by CES (see Supported Languages).||In the Language Detection section, select Reject the document (see Modifying How Documents Written in Unrecognized Languages Are Indexed).|
