MSSQL with full-text search slow after upgrade.

We are working with one of our vendors whose software stores images for retrieval. They just updated their software and we have noticed that retrieval has gotten very slow to the point the retrieval actually times out. The database is MSSQL and full-text search is turned on. What steps can I try to speed up image retrieval? Should I rebuild and/or reorganize indexes or do something with settings for full-text search? There are about 1,000,000 images and full-text search did not exist in their previous version. This is MS SQL 2019.

It is currently rebuilding the indexes. When it is done I will apply CU 13.

The images are not stored in the databases only links to the images. I will check out Ola. I had set up a maintenance schedule using SSMS.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Look at using dta

Capture a trace of SQL server queries, then analyze to see what modifications might help improve performance if index rebuild/reorganize does not improve things.

How big are the db's versus memory in the server?

The database involved with the images is 2.5GB. There is an unrelated database that is 50GB. There is 12GB RAM in the server.

12Gb for cumulative 52.5 gb in Databases, how active if at all is the 50GB db?

Oh, both questions are yours.
