Subject searching multiple indexes in multiple servers.
Date Fri, 09 Jun 2006 14:30:03 GMT
Hi all,

my index size has grown too much and I keep getting outOfMemoryError after running few searches.
I am using all the RAM that the JVM is allowing me 2.6GB.
I am left with two solutions now, the easy and expensive solution is to upgrade the hardware
to a 64-bit System and use more RAM. the other solution is to split the index in let's say
3 indexes, deploy each index on a different box. as I understand using a RemoteSearcher will
require opening the indexes with same Searcher, which will result in the OutOfMemoryError(correct
me if I am wrong). so each box will have it's own searcher, I need to find a way to run a
query on the 3 indexes and combine the results based on the query criteria.
has anyone done this before, and how was the performance?. is there another way that I am
thanks for the help, 
for those who love soccer enjoy the world cup.
