FAST ESP Apiqueue too full for operation of size

In FAST ESP 5.3 when trying to index large files, you might run in to the problem that the indexer API-queue
can’t handle the document because of its size.
By default the indexer API Queue is set at 52428800 bytes (50Mb). Mind that you only re-size this
API Queue when a single document is larger than the 50Mb, otherwise you can try to limit the size
of the submitted batch by whichever connector you are using.

If you are sure you need to enlarge the indexer API Queue do the following:

  1. On the admin-server edit the file $FASTSEARCH\etc\config_data\RTSearch\webcluster\rtsearchrc.xml
  2. Add the attribute maxQueueSize=”78643200“ to set the indexer API Queue Size to 75Mb, adjust to
    an appropriate value for your environment.
  3. Do a nctrl reloadcfg on the admin-server
  4. Do a restart of all indexer processes (either via nctrl or the System Management tab in the Admin-UI)

FAST ESP 5.3 - Disable daylight savings in a timezone without daylight savings

I’m installing a FAST ESP 5.3 sp3 setup in India. No I’m not there physically, via a remote desktop. As you might know, FAST doesn’t like Daylight Savings Time Adjustment. The Indian Timezone used by the server does not obey Daylight Savings, but the FAST ESP 5.3 sp3 installer still blocked on it’s check of Daylight Savings. To disable this correctly I opened up the timezone-adjustment dialog, switched to Amsterdam Timezone, unchecked Daylight Savings Support, switched back to the Indian timezone and pressed ok. FAST ESP 5.3 sp3 Installer is happy again :$
