Running Index Server Load Balancing from the Index Server Load


You can run index server load balancing from the Index Server Load Report. This redistributes loads across all Indexing Version 2 index servers in a CommCell in order to achieve optimal distribution of indexes across available disk space.


  • You can also perform Index Version 2 index server load balancing by running the Load Balance Index Servers Workflow in the CommCell Browser.

  • The CommCell also includes a default workflow called System created index cache load balancing, which runs automatically at midnight on the last Sunday of the month. You can modify this default workflow or run it immediately. For more information, see Managing Schedule Policies.
