15.2.9. Procedure – Disabling indexing on PSM

Purpose: 

To reduce load on PSM, you can disable indexing audit trails on the box. Note that this introduces delays when generating on-demand screenshots for audit trail searches.

Prerequisites: 

Disabling indexing on the PSM box works only if an external indexer is available. If PSM cannot detect the presence of an external indexer (for example, because of a network outage), indexing is re-enabled on PSM automatically with one indexing process.

Steps: 

  1. On the PSM web interface, navigate to Basic Settings > Local Services > Indexer service.

  2. Set the Maximum parallel audit trails to index on box to 0.

  3. Click .
