The concepts that are used in this document are:

Noetix Search Builder

Noetix Search Builder (Noetix Search Builder) is a Java client application that generates the search indexes for Noetix Search. It can be installed on a client computer or server computer using the Noetix Search Setup. The client computer on which you install Noetix Search Builder must be able to connect to the NoetixViews, Noetix Analytics, or RapidDecision schema and the server computer on which you have installed the Noetix Search Server component.

Noetix Search Builder is used for generating a Noetix Search instance, regenerating or deleting an existing Noetix Search instance. You can work with Noetix Search Builder on a computer running Microsoft Windows, Linux, AIX, or Solaris.

Noetix Search Instances

A Noetix Search instance correlates to the indexed NoetixViews, Noetix Analytics, or RapidDecision metadata. You can generate, regenerate, and delete Noetix Search instances for NoetixViews, Noetix Analytics, RapidDecision metadata. The documents created and indexed for the new Noetix Search instance share a unique instance identifier so that they can be identified with the Noetix Search instance that is created.

Noetix Search Server

Noetix Search Server is an enterprise search server and web search engine that Noetix Search uses for indexing the content in the NoetixViews, Noetix Analytics, or RapidDecision repository.

Documents

A document is an XML block or fragment consisting of field values that define the type of object described in the document. By default, these fields are defined in the Noetix Search Server schema file located at <installation folder>\Solr\solr\conf folder. In other words, a field is an attribute and a document contains fields of information. When you search for content in Noetix Search, these documents are searched in the Noetix Search Server index to find the information to be displayed as search results.

Noetix.Search.Builder.properties File

By default, the Noetix.Search.Builder.properties file is located at <installation folder>\builder on the computer where the Noetix Search Builder service is running. The default values for the Noetix Search Builder for Noetix Enterprise Manager (Noetix Search Builder for Noetix Enterprise Manager) settings are defined in this file. You can view the descriptions of the individual settings or customize the default settings according to your requirements.

Log Files

A log file is created each time you successfully generate or regenerate a Noetix Search instance, or when you exit Noetix Search Builder from any page after the “Noetix Search Server Connection” page. These files store information about a build event and are created as .log and .xml files.

The .log file can be viewed using a text editor such as Notepad++. The entries in the .log file are organized chronologically. For example, the entries that were logged first, appear first in the file. The .xml file is created only when you have successfully finished generating or regenerating a Noetix Search instance. This .xml file can be viewed through a web browser.

You can distinguish the log files based on the time specified in the log file name. The log file name indicates the date and time when Noetix Search Builder was run and comprises two parts as shown in the following example:

Part 1: The date (in the yyyy-mm-dd format) when Noetix Search Builder was run. In the above example, it was run on May 19, 2008.

Part 2: The time (in the hh:mm:ss.sss format) when Noetix Search Builder was run. In the above example, it was run at 20:39:04.573.

Log files are stored at <installation folder>\builder\logs folder on the computer where Noetix Search Builder for Noetix Enterprise Manager is installed and where Noetix Search Builder is running. To troubleshoot the log files, e-mail the log files to insightsoftwareSupport.
