Make searches precise. For example, include the
author or recipient details, or specify date ranges.
In the properties of the department, limit the
number of searchable vault stores.
Only use wildcards when necessary, as they can
severely affect performance.
Avoid overusing search terms. Thousands of terms
can cause iterative searches.
Ensure that scheduled searches do not run at the
same time as system backups.
Quickly accept or reject searches to avoid filling
and slowing the database.
Test new searches in research folders, and then
delete the folders as necessary.
