Up to 5X Faster Search Filtering in Magnet AXIOM 4.0

You asked and we heard you load and clear! In addition to all the new and exciting features in the latest release of Magnet AXIOM 4.0, we’ve significantly improved searching and filtering speeds in AXIOM Examine. With prior versions of AXIOM, we heard from customers time and again that running these filters was cripplingly slow and a point of frustration for many users. In AXIOM 4.0, we switched to using Apache LuceneTM for these searches, making for a smoother user experience and saving you time in your casework!


Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library. You’ll notice when you open a case in AXIOM Examine, the text found within that case must be indexed in order to utilize this functionality. You will notice at the bottom of your AXIOM Examine window that the Search Index will begin to build automatically. You will have to option to cancel, but we recommend you don’t! It does not take very much time to build this index, and you can still navigate through AXIOM and work your case while it is indexing.

Once the index is built, you will be able to use the Global Search filter within your case considerably faster! In our tests, we noticed speed improvements that were as much as 5 times faster than in previous versions of AXIOM! See the chart below for the results of our testing.
