Google Search Appliance Maintenance

September 24th, 2009 by mdmcginnis

To improve performance, the Google Search Appliance ( will be re-indexed early Saturday morning (beginning around 2 am, then I’ll go back to bed). Search results will be unavailable for a short term and limited until the full index is recreated. Crawling, indexing, serving, and administrative access will resume within 15 minutes. Pages will be indexed in order of popularity, so searches will rapidly improve in quality. Last time we did this, our most popular searches were returning excellent results within half an hour. Complete functionality should be restored before most people wake up. This maintenance event will also be posted by CIS at

If you use a Google Search Appliance search box on your site (which you can and should), you might want to update your pages to use the public Google search while the index is rebuilding. But you probably get very few searches during those wee hours of the morning.
