Full-Text Catalog Properties (General Page)
This section shows the options and functions available on the General page of the Full-Text Catalog Properties dialog box.
For SQL Server 2008 databases, a full-text catalog is a logical concept that refers to a group of full-text indexes. The full-text catalog is a virtual object that does not belong to any filegroup.
Does not perform Optimize catalog, Rebuild catalog, or Repopulate catalog operations.
Optimizes the space utilization of the catalog and improves query performance. It also improves the accuracy of relevance ranking of search results.
This action executes ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG catalog_name REORGANIZE.
Deletes and rebuilds the full-text catalog. This operation must be performed if a fundamental catalog property is changed, such as accent sensitivity.
For the rebuild to succeed, the filegroup the full-text catalog resides in must be online or read-writeable. After the rebuild, the full-text index will be repopulated.
This action executes ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG catalog_name REBUILD.
Updates the catalog with recent changes to the data. This option does require catalog downtime.
