What do you mean by index-related information? If you are referring
to dataimport.properties, the file that stores information about the
last time the dataimporthandler (DIH) ran, then DIH will only pick
up information from that file. However, you could push that data into
a database, and retrieve then when reindexing, if so desired.

If you are referring to the index files themselves, it makes no sense
to do that, as one would be losing many of the benefits of Solr/Lucene.
