Recommended configuration for crawling large hosts

When defining content sources to crawl in SharePoint Search, the maximum number of threads that can simultaneously make requests to a host is set to 12 by default OOB. This value affects the rate of content discovery from the host. For all small and medium sized hosts (<10M), this thread count is sufficient. But if the target host is >10M, we recommend you increase the thread count.

Workaround    For large hosts (>10M items), we recommend you set the number of threads to 32 or more. This is over-and-above the recommendation to have dedicated crawl targets that helps manage load on front ends efficiently without impacting performance observed by users of that host.

Management Shell shows an error when open

When you open the Management Shell, you see the following error message:

Cannot process argument because the value of argument"implementingType" is null. Change the value of argument "implementingType" to a non-null value.

Workaround    This error doesn't block any scenarios. The shell works for all cmdlets.
