Subject RE: Memory Usage?
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2001 20:38:47 GMT
funny...I was just about to write something along the same lines..

I have 700.000 entries, in all about 1 gig of data. And when I search I have
to allocate at least 150meg to the java-process or it'll run out of memory.

Could someone (most likely Doug) outline how much memory we can expect is
necessary when searching? (big-Oh notation would be nice)

Subject: Memory Usage?

We're having problems with memory allocation (and thus garbage collection)
that seem to be directly attributable to our heavy use of Lucene indexes.  I
don't have a lot of data on this yet, but has anyone else seen this as an
issue?  Is there any way that Lucene could be tuned to use less memory
during searches?
