Content

DWORD.

The default value is 5, and the maximum value is 10.

Description

ScanThreads specifies the maximum number of volumes that FSA Reporting can scan simultaneously on a target file server. For example, if you set ScanThreads to 3, and more than three volumes are enabled for FSA Reporting, only three volumes are scanned initially. FSA Reporting does not start to scan another volume until the scan completes on at least one of the three initial volumes.

By reducing this value you reduce the resource demand, although you lengthen the time for multiple FSA Reporting scans to complete.

For Windows file servers, set this registry value on the file server. For NetApp and EMC Celerra/VNX file servers, set this registry value on the FSA Reporting proxy server.

After you set or change this value, do as follows:

  • If you changed the value on an Enterprise Vault server, restart the Enterprise Vault Admin service on the Enterprise Vault server.

  • Otherwise, restart the Enterprise Vault File Collector service on the computer on which you changed the value.
