Subject Re: Ingestion of multimedia files in manifoldcf

Hi Dileepa,

MCF is generally able to deal with large files, provided the connectors
being used are implemented consistently with the principle of "bounded
memory".  However, some connectors and/or some operating modes are not
capable of good behavior.  An example is the non-extracting Solr output
connector, where the SolrJ library requires that all pre-extracted content
fit in memory in order to be indexed.
