PDF iFilter Test, with SharePoint 2010
[update Adobe PDF iFilter result]
Recently Foxit updated their PDF iFilter 2.0. An interesting improvement is “optimized for multi-core processor”. It claims that you can get 3 times better performance compared with its own version 1.0. Let’s see how my test result goes.
Dell 2950 (I bought this two years ago)
2 x quad core Intel Xeon E5410 @ 2.33GHz, 8GB Memory, 3 x 10000 rpm HD RAID 5
22,559 PDF Files in 84 folders, 15.7 GB total, from People’s Daily Archive
File Share, on the same machine, to avoid network latency and bottlenecks
Windows Server 2008 R2
SQL Server 2008 R2 Nov CTP
SharePoint Server 2010 Beta
Foxit PDF iFilter 2.0 x64
TET PDF iFIlter 3.0 x64
Adobe PDF iFilter 9.0 x64
After each crawl, reset index, restart osearch14 service.
Test Result – update Adobe PDF iFilter result
File Per Second
Amazing! The full crawl was done in just 13 minutes. If you still remember the last test I did, Foxit version 1.0 got 10.73 files per second on SharePoint 2007 x64 with the same hardware spec.
Adobe PDF iFilter is single threaded. Only one CPU core was working during the full indexing process.
Here’re the screenshots of the CPU usage…
Nice job, Foxit!
