Accessing Index Management
To access Index Management:
|1.||On the Admin menu, select System > Index Management.|
- If you use Solr search engine for full-text catalog.
- If you use Flat catalog product options.
|2.||Any indexer with a checkbox next to its name can be managed manually. The other indexers update automatically according to your Magento cron job. The default mode for each indexer is set in the system configuration.|
The name of the indexer.
A description of the indexer.
Applies only to the indicated indexers. Most of the indicated indexers are set to Update on Save, which means a reindex is required when a change is saved.

A change has been made that requires reindexing. If a checkbox and Reindex Required link appears, can be reindexed manually.
The index is up-to-date.
Reindexing is scheduled to take place.
Reindexing is currently running.
The following options apply only to the automatic indexers:
Reindexing is required but hasn't run yet according to your Magento cron job.
Rreindexing is required and is either running or in the queue.
Indicates reindexing is required but there is an issue preventing it from running. If this state persists, submit a bug report.
Applies only to the indicated indexers. Indicates whether or not you must manually reindex. (The value in the Mode column indicates whether the indexer must be manually updated.)
Displays the date and time an index was last manually updated, or Never if the index has never been manually updated.
Indexers that require manual updating display a Reindex Data link. Click the link to reindex only that option.
