Run Load Balance

This feature, initiated by clicking the Run Load Balance button, redistributes loads across all Indexing Version 2 index servers in a CommCell in order to achieve optimal distribution of indexes across available disk space.

The following image shows the Run Load Balance button:

Note:

  • The Run Load Balance button appears only after downloading and deploying the Load Balance Index Servers Workflow in the CommCell.
  • 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.

For more information, see Running Index Server Load Balancing from the Index Server Load Report.

Current Index Server Load Status

This chart displays the number of selected Indexing Version 2 index servers with index caches in Light, Good, Warning, and Overloaded load statuses. These load statuses, which are calculated as current free disk space divided by total disk size of the index cache, are as follows:

  • Light: The index server load is in a light state (load status of 0% to 30%).
  • Good: The index server load is in an optimal state (load status of 31% to 70%).
  • Warning: The index server load is nearing an overloaded state (load status of 71% to 90%).
  • Overloaded: The index server load is in an overloaded state, and load balancing should be performed (load status of 91% to 100%).

Index Size in MediaAgents

This chart displays the sizes of each index (in actual MB, and as a percentage of the total size of all indexes) across the selected Indexing Version 2 index servers.

MediaAgent Status

This chart displays the load statuses of the selected Indexing Version 2 index servers.

The following image is an example of the MediaAgent Load Status chart:

Top 5 MediaAgents Load

This chart shows load trends by displaying the past, present, and future loads of the selected Indexing Version 2 index servers. The loads are calculated as free disk space versus total disk size of the index cache.
