For those of you that have virtualized your instances (both application and database), what are your indexing speeds like / how many issues do you have?
Ours seems to vary wildly. We have ~80,000 issues and a background index takes a widely variable amount of time.
I would look at the storage performance.What are you using to provision storage to the VM?
On system I use quite often with 50K issues background indexing takes about 8 mins.
This KB Article explains how to start about performance troubleshooting.
Thanks Peter. We have 24GB RAM with 8 Cores. We're using RAID'ed SSD drives for storage. Anti-virus should not be a factor on the machine. The 5 hour background index was on off-hours (sunday afternoon).
We have 90,000 issues and a background index on sunday afternoon took over 5 hours.
We have 323 custom fields according to System Info, could that be a reason? I've tried to restrict some of them to specific projects, but I still have some room to go there. What is your custom field count at?
Background index times depend on the activity in JIRA at the same time. I'd check your VM server statistics for other VMs using resources (CPU/disk) during the same time. You also want to check you have enough -Xmx set for the JVM heap to avoid large GC pauses
