Subject running optimize on master
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 00:09:33 GMT

I've read running optimize is similar to running defrag on a hard disk.  Deleted 
docs are removed and segments are reorganized for faster searching.

I have a couple questions.

Is optimize necessary if  I never delete documents?  I build the index every 
hour but we don't delete in between builds.

Secondly, what kind of reorganizing of segments is done to make searches faster?
