Subject Files greater than 20 MB not getting Indexed. No files generated except write.lock even after 8-9 minutes.
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 05:51:07 GMT
Hello all,

Faced with a typical issue.
I have many files which I am indexing.

Problem Faced:
a. File having size less than 20 MB are successfully indexed and merged.

b. File having size >20MB are not getting INDEXED.. No Exception is 
being thrown. Only a lock file is being created in the index directory. 
The indexing process for a single file exceeding 20 MB size continues 
for more than 8 minutes after which I have a code which merge the 
generated index to existing index.

Since no index is being generated now, I get an exception during merging 

Why Files having size greater than 20 MB are not being indexed..??.  I 
am indexing each line of the file. Why IndexWriter is not throwing any 

Do I need to change any parameter in Lucene or tweak the Lucene settings 
?? Lucene version is 4.4.0

My current deployment for Lucene is on a server running with 128 MB and 
512 MB heap.
