We ran some tests yesterday and were
surprised shocked by the results - wondering if anyone can explain the gap?
We took an AFP file that contained 13K+ documents (65k+ pages) and converted it to a PDF with PPDs.
We loaded both documents into identical applications (except the indexer, obviously). The ACIF indexer took two minutes. The PDF indexer took 45! And it pegged the server CPU the whole time. We thought perhaps this was because the PDF had compression enabled during the conversion, so we converted it again without compression....that one took 51 minutes to load and again killed the CPU for a large portion of that time.
We fully expected there to be some lag with the PDF, but not to this degree. Is this just the way it is, or are there perhaps some tweaks we missed that would bring this more in line with the AFP? I think we all expected it would take no more than 10 minutes to load.
