Question

Why does the ArcGISIndexingServer.exe use a high amount of computer memory?

Answer

The ArcGISIndexingServer.exe updates ArcGIS Pro maps and layouts in projects to improve ability to search. This process consumes memory according to the size of the project and the amount of data that must be indexed.

Indexing can be turned off or deleted if the search process is rarely done or if the user knows the location of the item.

To delete the index, use the following steps:

1. Click the Project tab > Options.
