Subject Problem with IndexReader
Date Mon, 08 Nov 2004 14:28:23 GMT


We are using Tomcat-4.0.6, jdk1.4.0.03 and Lucene 1.3.
We have a global index directory of 390136 KB size. It so happens that
sometimes, it throws and exception "Too many files open" when it tries
to open an IndexReader to this directory to create indexes and after
that, no search indexes are generated and all the indices get garbled
and no search results are returned either unless, we restore the working
copy of global index directory. What could be the reason behind this and
how can we resolve this issue?  

If upgrading to latest Lucene version is the answer, which version has
been thoroughly tested and can be used with minimal testing on our side?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. We need to resolve this issue

Thanks and regards
Neelam Bhatnagar

A good way is to add the patch as an attachment to the bug in bugzilla.
For every change in bugzilla concerning Lucene, bugzilla generates a
email to this list.
