An Enterprise Vault server can be overloaded because both the Archiving tasks and Indexing tasks and Storage services all share resources. You may have some servers that are underused while others are short of memory and of CPU capacity.
It can be beneficial to do the following:
Add new servers to an Index Server group that is dedicated to indexing and searching some or all vault stores.
Arrange the vault stores so that archives are split by type. For example, use specific vault stores for journal archives. You can then assign a vault store that contains a specific archive type to an Index Server group.
This change has the following advantages:
Indexing CPU and memory requirements are shared between Index Servers.
The indexing load is removed from the servers that run the Archiving tasks and Storage tasks.
The performance of indexing and searching are improved because there are dedicated resources on separate servers.
