update indices


when i try to load my repository i can see a option 'update indices'.

Does it mean that repository structural changes when compared to previous load are only updated !!!!

Not very clear, can any one explain me in simple words!!

Kind Regards

Index : A database index is a data structure that improves the speed of data retrieval operations on a database table

Accelerator files: MDS server create accelerator file to speed up the data communication from memory instead of database,

if the repository loaded immediately : indices are loaded from accelerator files instead of being regenerate by reading them from database

if the repository loaded indices :rebuilds all MDM indexes files by reading and indexing data stored in the database this option generally used when changing MDM repository structure or if any error occur
