X1 practical limits

Postby poy » Fri Aug 19, 2016 10:30 am

Hi,

Some years ago I bought X1 Search and was really happy with it.
I used a state of the art Notebook and X1 found everything.

Then I bought a new machine. 250GB SSD, 1TB SSD, 16GB Ram, Core i7.

But X1 8.4.1 never made it to index it fully. (1Mio Emails, ~7Mio files.)

I hate to say it: Windows 7/64 internal search "finds it". (Even though search syntax could be more effective.)
X1 does not. (Just checked - it has a 24GB index for ~3.5Mio items)

I was a big X1 fan. But now I wonder if it is still up to the job.

Anybody out there who uses X1 in a similar scale?

Kind regards,
p

As X1 staff feels better not answer this simple question, I assume X1 can't handle more than some Gigs of data.

Looks I need to find an alternative. If you know any, please PM. Thanks.

Did you ever find an alternative? I seem to be running into a similar circumstance. I've spent a days trying to index my files and emails for the FIRST time on a new. It always hangs up, stalls out, crashes, and I end up having to delete the index and start over. I'm beginning to think it's not able to finish its initial scan, and I'll be left to find an alternative solution (but few exist now with the same promised feature set of X1). I would love to know what happened between the 6.x and 8.x versions.

I'm happy with X1, but I also use dtSearch. The interface is not nearly as friendly & efficient as X1's, but for indexing large quantities of data & finding it fast, it rocks. I also like that dtSearch can make use of synonyms.

My search dream: The UI of X1, the breadth of dtSearch, and the ability to cluster results (Carrot2).

I had much better success with older versions. v8 has just not performed well for me either. I used to index several million files, but v8 chokes after about half a million for me (3.6ghz, 64g, all nvme/ssd). I also frequently fall back to native search to find things.

Currently I am using X1 8.5 6001qm and it works reasonably well with 7.9Mio indexed objects.
In order to speed up the initial index process, I backup the index directory regularly as the X1 index get corrupted every couple of months.
