Strigi extremely slow

I have around 1.9TB of data (~980k+ files) which I intend to index for fast searching. I added just one of the ntfs partitions in strigi to see how fast it will index, and it was doing this at about 9 files per minute, which is extremely slow IMO. The files weren’t even txt or document files that it needed to process the text in them (they are video files mostly)

Is there any other alternative search application available for 11.3 which is considerably faster when indexing for the first time?

Maybe strigi does that on purpose. This way other task are not slowed down
significantly.

Also NTFS is slower then a native file system.
