Subject: Help With Redundant? Files
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
Content-Description: cc:Mail note part
I am hoping that someone will be able to help me save a little space.
After my last successful rundig indexing process finished the contents
of my htdig/db directory are as follows:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 864655675 Jun 7 09:04 db.docdb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 68338245 Jun 7 08:07 db.docs.index
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 893519027 Jun 6 23:01 db.wordlist
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 784094108 Jun 6 23:00 db.words.gdbm
The four db.* files total 2.6GB and I also have to maintain a second
copy of them in another directory to which I create symbolic links so
that htsearch will not fail whilst the indexing routine is in process
- last time it took 43 hours and even over the weekend I cannot have
the search unavailable for that long.
It has been suggested to me that htsearch only uses db.words.gdbm and
db.docs.index and that I can safely delete db.docdb and db.wordlist
once htmerge has finished.
Does anyone know if this is true? If so I could free up 3.5GB of my
disk (including the backup copies) which would be very welcome.
If deleting these files will stop me from doing an incremental dig I
don't care as I always start from scratch anyway. The incremental dig
always fails with a memory error (probably not enough of it) but the
regular dig works OK.
Thanks in advance for your help,
