Subject optimizing index - too many open files
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2002 20:23:58 GMT
Hello all,

I am running into an error: /lucene/index/_2vx.tii ( too many open
files )
after my class calls IndexWriter.optimize().

Does anybody know what causes this error?
Any help is appreciated.

( By the way, the site that I am indexing is huge.
  I have a crawler run through the site calling many .jsps, .pdfs, and .html
  It ran fine two days ago after indexing 3700+ pages. )

Could the index be too large for Lucene to handle?

files )
