Greetings everyone, I’ve tried to search for this topic as well as Google it so if I’ve missed it I apologise and could you please direct me to the appropriate thread.
I’m running the latest Autopsy 4.19.1 on a Windows 10 machine with 24 Xeon E5-2680 v3 CPUs and 32 gig of ram with Oracle JDK 1.8.0_221 (Check that! - I discovered autopsy on windows comes bundled with its own OpenJDK).
I’m also trying to run the ingest on an SSD. I’m finding the ingest is extremely slow to the point it is taken more than 24 hours to run an is still running. I’ve tried to tune it as best as I know how at this stage by increasing the number of ingest threads to 4 but alas it is still slow, and I mean extremely slow.
I can see that it’s still running but the rate in which it is progressing means it will probably run for another day or two.
Is there a way to get additional debug as to what is currently happening, or is anyone aware of this issue and knows of a suitable work around?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Update: I built an Ubuntu Virtual Machine and installed Autopsy 4.19.1 within. The ingest was an order of magnitude faster than Windows. Ideally, I would like this running in Windows natively.
