The snippeting feature does not have a performance impact during Data Foundry processing. However, enabling snippeting does affect query runtime performance.

There is no effect on Forge or Dgidx processing time or indexing space requirements on your hard disk.

You can minimize the performance impact on query runtime by limiting the number of words in a property that the MDEX Engine evaluates to identify the snippet. This approach is especially useful in cases where a snippet-enabled property stores large amounts of text.

Provide the --snip_cutoff <num words> flag to the dgraph to restrict the number of words that the MDEX Engine evaluates in a property.

For example, --snip_cutoff 300 evaluates the first 300 words of the property to identify the snippet.
