Crucible\FishEye changing Perforce repo

While evaluating Crucible and FishEye we indexed a subset of our depot. Now we would like to expand it to include the entire depot. I was planning to change the depot path from //depot/something/something/ to //depot/

Just wondering if this will cause a complete re-index or will FishEye\Crucible only index the new data? It took around 2 weeks to index the subset so it would be nice to know what to expect.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Simon,

This action will require a complete re-index, because you'll be reconfiguring the repository location in order to include more folders and files.

In order to have a better idea of how long it would require to have that repository fully indexed again, a suggestion is to configure that repository in a test environment first.

Kind regards,

We're concerned that it will take a month or more to index the data, which is not great. The indexer appeared to be single threaded (ie it only used a single core of the machine it was on), and was CPU bound. Is there any way to speed the process? Are there any plans to improve the performance?
