MOSS 2007: large search content sources

  Asked By: Robin    Date: Mar 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1085

I would like some opinions on how to "correctly" configure MOSS 2007
search content sources for very large file stores, WSS v2 sites and
various intranet web sites.

Scenario shown below indicate sizes of indexable content e.g. word,
excel, ppt, pdf files etc

Projects File Server 1 - \\projects01 – 500GB
Projects File Server 2 - \\projects02 – 300GB
Projects File Server 3 - \\projects03 – 200GB
Projects File Server 4 - \\projects04 – 200GB
Department File Server - \\departments – 200GB

40 WSS Sites – http://wss – 10GB

30 "Static" Intranet sites – http://intranet – 1GB

How would you set up content sources based on the information above?

Would the following make sense?

Documents Content Source
\\projects01
\\projects02
\\projects03
\\projects04
\\departments

Intranet Content Source
http://intranet/site1
http://intranet/site2 ..... site30

WSS Content Source
http://wss/site1
http://wss/site2 ... site40

Is there a limit to how many documents can reside in one content
source, i.e. the Documents Content Source index would probably end up
being around 1.4TB….. with around 3 million documents...

Is this OK or should i create four seperate content sources for the
five file servers?

How will this all impact performance etc?

Anyone got any best practise regarding indexing vary large  content
sources?

I want to index around 1.4TB of data (3 million files) and need an
approach which best make use of MOSS indexing.

Do I create one content  source for all file server sources  or create
five separate content sources for five different file servers?

Projects File Server 1 - \\projects01 – 500GB
Projects File Server 2 - \\projects02 – 300GB
Projects File Server 3 - \\projects03 – 200GB
Projects File Server 4 - \\projects04 – 200GB
Department File Server - \\departments – 200GB
