Search and dashboard load slowly - index timestamp is not updated due to file permissions
On Linux and Unix based systems, the following symptoms may occur:
- Searches are very slow, therefore viewing the dashboard is very slow, but otherwise performance is okay.
- The Index Queue sometimes contains too many entries and entries that are too old.
The Java method Confluence uses to set the last modified date on the .timestamp file sometimes fails if it is not running as the owner of the file, even when the user does have permission to edit the file.
Delete the .timestamp file located in the <Confluence_Home>/index directory. CONF-9228 has additional information.
