Questions :- Document library/ limitations of CAML Query on the document library with huge documents
Within a site collection we have a single document library where the documents are being placed, the number of documents in the document library are now in thousands.
The requirement is that all the documents (newly added) should be available through the custom search. For which we have used the CAML query to retrieve the documents from the
single document library document library, which is now working good.
If you ask me why have we not used the SharePoint search?
That is because the client wants the newly added documents also to be visible in the search, and until the crawling is performed the documents will not be available on the search.
Is it a right approach to place incremental crawls every minute on the single document library?
As we are using CAML Query, will the performance of the Custom search (retrieval of the documents) degrade if the documents increase in number?
The Crawling is not performed on the single document library as we are not using the SharePoint search.
Even though we are not using SharePoint search, will the crawling of the document library give a boost to the CAML Query in the longer run?
What steps should be taken to plan for the document library and improve the performance?
