Warning message 'Total number of file types exceeds one thousand'

Problem: If you specify more than 1,000 different file types in your file groups, the Administration Console displays a warning message similar to the following:

The total number of file types exceeds one thousand. 
This many file types may degrade the performance of FSA 
Reporting.
If you use FSA Reporting we advise that you reduce the number of 
file types.

Cause: FSA Reporting gathers data about file groups and file types for the following data analysis reports:

  • File Group Space Usage on a Server

  • File Group Space Usage Summary

  • Inactive Files on a Server by File Group

  • File Space Usage on an Archive Point

These reports present separate data for each file type that is included within a file group when the FSA Reporting scan is performed. The more file types that you define within your file groups, the more information FSA Reporting is required to gather and store for these reports. If you use FSA Reporting, we advise that you specify fewer than 1,000 different file types in your Enterprise Vault file groups. Otherwise, the performance of FSA Reporting may be degraded.

Resolution: If you receive this message and you use FSA Reporting, we advise that you reduce the number of file types.

Note:

Enterprise Vault combines the data for the file types that are not included in any file group. The report tables display this combined data as file type "misc" under the entry "Others" in the File Group column.
