When viewing the index volumes with index volumes browser, it would be good if the indexing level could actually be shown either preferrably as one of the columns, or in the double-click details.

Tricky one there Jeff.. because can't you change this 'mid flow' and then new stuff will be still being added to the same index volume, but at a different indexing level?

So you might have:

mmmmmmedium-fulllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

All in one volume?

Index volume browser is simply for browsing. Im not talking about making changes....just that it would be nice to see in a single place what the indexing level is of each indexing volume.

I'm also not talking about making changes... but, I am saying that if it said 'medium'.  It only means that is what it is now... 5 minutes ago, and the other million items in the index might have all been 'full'...

Or am I wrong?

you would only need to know the current indexing level, and if there were mixed indexing levels.

Mixed indexing levels are already a search criteria.

Ultimately you would NOT want mixed indexing levels. It would be nice to see what indexing level the indexes are at though, at a glance, in one place.

It would *also* be nice to divide indexes up by archive type....but that is another enhancement waiting to be posted...

Currently EV doesn't store the Indexing level change history, so there is no way to know the level is actually mixed.

Has anyone else run into this being a big issue??
