How many items are in my FAST Search index?

Even though the vast majority of FAST Search administration options are governed via Powershell cmdlets, there is a quick way to determine the total number of items in an index without logging onto a FAST Search for SharePoint server.

Simply open any SharePoint site which is leveraging ‘FAST’, and type ‘#’

And total items are now returned!

Be aware though, this search option is ONLY available via FAST and will not work in native SharePoint 2010 search.
