Improving Verity Search Performance

Verity data is stored in collections – files that are updated whenever index information is updated. But updates fragment the collection, and fragmented collections take up significantly more disk space and can eventually slow the collection to the point of being unsearchable. The solution is to reindex (or recreate) collections as needed. But this is not always an option, and so the next best thing you can do is reduce the number of transactions being performed on the collection. Rather than updating the collection every time you update your data, save the changes and perform scheduled updates grouping the new data changes into a single submission.
