Subject OutOfMemoryError
Date Tue, 20 May 2003 20:46:18 GMT

I'm using lucene (lucene-1.3).

I refresh indexes by completely destroying the old index and creating a new
one (as opposed to adding and removing documents from an existing index).
Each index is optimized at the end of the build. The largest index I have
is about 650M and contains about 800,000 documents.

>From what I've read so far, there is no way to further optimize an index
that is created from scratch (and optimized), but just to confirm: Are
there additional optimization techniques that could be used in this
situation?  Is there any benefit to reducing the size of a single 650M
index by creating multiple, smaller indexes (multisearcher penalties)?
