Subject RE: Memory issues with jackrabbit/lucene

Thanks for the reply.  Yes, we do store large documents (rtf and large xml documents).  When
we store each document, we create a session, add the document, save the session, and close
the session.  The LuceneTermBuffers remain.  However, if the indexing occurs asynchronously,
this may be what's filling up the memory.  Eventually, the application gets an out of memory

I will look into removing the SearchIndex elements from the repository.xml and workspace.xml.
 Do we also need to remove the index directories from the wsp.home path?  Will removing the
SearchIndex elements make retrieval of the documents (with the node keys) slower?

You say memory leaks but the memory may be needed if you create lots
of documents and only save once later at the end of the processing.
Indeed transient nodes and properties will be kept in memory till
changes are committed.
If this is a memory leak, once the documents are stored and sessions
are closed do you still have memory allocated with Lucene objects ?
Do you store big file like PDF which is known for being indexing slowly
and asynchronously in JR ?

Anyway, you can try to remove all the SearchIndex elements in your
repository.xml (do not forget to report these changes into existing
workspaces using repo/workspaces/<wsp-name>/workspace.xml)
to disable indexation.
