Subject Re: Finding unused segment files?
Date Sun, 12 Dec 2004 23:05:15 GMT
Hello George,

Here is a quick hack (with a few TODOs).  I only tested it a bit, so
the actual delete calls are still commented out.  If this works for
you, and especially if you take care of TODOs, I may put this in the
Lucene Sandbox.

Otis
P.S.
Usage example showing how the fool found some unused segments (this was
caused by a bug in one of the earlier 1.4 versions of Lucene).

[otis@cosmo java]$ java org.apache.lucene.index.SegmentPurger
/simpy/users/1/index
Candidate non-Lucene file found: _1b2.del
Candidate unused Lucene file found: _1b2.cfs

Candidate unused Lucene file found: _1da.cfs
