How to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer

Hi,

The Archive Explorer will only display 10 pages by default. Can settings be changed to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer? How?

I have EV 6.3.

Thanks,

Hong

Re: How to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer

This is a new default set in EV6 SP2 in regards to the new federated searching feature in SP2 - this allows a search to be run over a number of rollover vaults at the same time.

This maximum can however be changed by doing the following:-

1. Create or modify the webapp.ini found in the \program files\enterprise vault\ directory on the Vault server.
2. Add the following line:-

=

Where number is the number or results needed. 10000 items will show 100 pages in Archive Explorer.

3. Restart the IIS service (IISRESET from a run prompt) and then try the search again.

That should resolve the issue.

Re: How to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer

When enabling Federated Searching you have to be aware of the performance impact that this may have on the EV and SQL server.

Also, you can add more info to the webapp.ini file, below are some of the key elements - please note the webapp.ini file is case-sensitive and format aware (i.e. no spaces etc)

In order to control federated searching there are some new settings within WebApp.ini (located in WebApp.ini) being :-

FederatedSearchMaxVolSets
This determines the maximum number of IndexVolumeSets to search simultaneously.
Format :- FederatedSearchMaxVolSets=# where # is a number.
Default :- 5 (if not set).

FederatedSearchMaxItems
In order to control how IndexVolumeSet results are merged together there is a limit to the number of items that should be obtained from each IndexVolumeSet. That number is this property, MaxVolSetsItems.
Consequently this number also determines the maximum number of results that a user would see matching his query. This is because it is possible that the most relevant results, after sorting etc. for his query came from ONLY one IndexVolumeSet.
Format :-FederatedSearchMaxItems=# where # is a number.
Default :- 1000 (if not set).

FederatedSearchTimeout
This is a time limit to determine how long the federated search can take before it should be ended.
Format :-FederatedSearchTimeout=# where # is a number of seconds.
Default :-60 (if not set).

UseFederatedSearch
This controls whether federated searching should be allowed for everyone who uses the WebApps. It maybe the administrator wants to turn off this functionality perhaps for configuration / performance reasons.
Format :-UseFederatedSearch=# where # is a number.
Default:-1 (if not set).



Mark.

Along the same line, how can I have more than 100 items displayed per page?

Re: How to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer

I believe this is hard coded, in that the page has a 100 item limit.

Re: How to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer

Hi,
 
Does this apply to EV 2007 as well ?
 
We had encountered the same problem, please advice.
 
Thanks and regards,

Re: How to display more than 10 pages in Archive Explorer

Yes - applies to EV2007 SP1 - works well

 

Here it is for 3000 items 

 

**ON THE SERVER**

c:\program files\enterprise vault

create webapp.ini - ANSI format

 

UseFederatedSearch=1
FederatedSearchMaxItems=3000

 

Do an iisreset and all good.
