Multiple identical events in Application Event Log
Posted on 2009-02-18
We have a Windows 2003 Server (SP2), dedicated to our databases. We use SQL Server 2000 for our databases and have full-text search for all the databases, running at different times daily. The full-text search for most of the databases are incremental indexing at night. For sometime now we see in the Application Event Viewer of the server that for each db that search indexing starts, it happens 4 times rather than just once, even though all four have same Event IDs and started at exact same time. Therefore, in the Event Viewer, there are 4 copies of Gatherer log for the search index for a database, instead of one. We wonder if that has performance/load issues on our server since there are many databases? Why/how would a full-text index schedule for a database produce 4 events instead of 1?
