Subject Re: Lucene 2.9.0 leaves too many .cfs files open, causing too many files open java error.
Date Sun, 18 Oct 2009 18:11:43 GMT
I actually have seen the problem in both, with our app.  Not sure if  
it's how we are using lucene or if the problem is internal.  We  
actually only saw the problem recently because we starting using a new  
linux machine that had it's open file handle settings too low.  And  
with our volume it only took about 10 hours for the machine to start  
having problems.  Hence the need for the hack patch.
