This demonstration illustrates the sequence of events that occurs when you initiate a full crawl. The video shows the following events:

  • Replication of content source data to the search registry hive on each crawl server

  • Crawling of Web sites and SharePoint site structures

  • Processing by the content processing pipeline, including word breakers, IFilters, and indexing

  • Replication of the index to query servers

The scenario depicted assumes a single crawl database and a single index partition.
