I have the latest version of NetshServer installed.
My data mass has millions of small files where searching is slow.
I would like to have an index file for faster searching when users try to browse some file on samba server.
It used to be “netatalk AFP” for linux rpm, and it has its own index, but AFP falls out of favor.
When I installed the AFP version for Windows Server, AFP used the native Windows feature “Windows Search”, there was always some problem reindexing, but ok, there was something.
I haven’t found anything on Linux, I know XFS works with journaling, but it doesn’t even come close to having an index file.
I don’t know if NetshServer already has some complementary support feature for what I need in order to integrate with Samba, or if there is any syntax I can enable in smb.conf.
I have an SSD for the operating system where I intend to store this index, in order to speed up the search in the file itself, besides 32 GB RAM and only use terminal mode.
I read the documentation on https://www.samba.org/ but found no parameter to specify an index file.
Does anyone in the community know anything about this and could help me?
Thank you in advance.
