The KM Search Engine now consumes less memory when it indexes for .xlsx, .docx, and .pptx files.

issue_1) java exception: Read timed out


configure KMSearchEngineTimeout to a bigger number in sm.ini. the default value of KMSearchEngineTimeout is 20 seconds.

issue_2) big memory usage

workaround :

1) user can change xlsx file to xls file because xls file use less memory

2) change the jvm memory solr uses by:

2.1) on windows: open file: searchEngine/tomcat/bin/setenv.bat

on unix, open file: searchEngine/tomcat/bin/

2.2) change the second line to:

set CATALINA_OPTS=-Xms256m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:PermSize=256M -Xmx2048m (change the number according to your own environment)
