Collections/Resources -> Overview

        Click to enlarge.

Overview is where you check status and configure your collections. Collections are grouped by type of crawler (SMB, Exchange etc.).

To recrawl a collection, select Crawl now. The collection will immediately start to recrawl if the Collection manager is allowed to crawl in this time interval (see Collection manager). To configure the collection, select Manage. You can also see some statistics there. Test-collections are managed from Crawler extensions (under Connectors). Remote installed crawlers generate Pushed collections, and should be managed from the remote host.
