I have had the save problem on hp/ux 10.20 with Swish-e 1.3.2, so I guess
it will not help. Splitting the index into smaller files and then merging
the files did the work when I did it this way:
- creating an index for every 200 files.
- merging the indexes 2 by 2 and then repeating. (going from e.g 64 files,
to 32, 8,4,2,1)
It worked for 11'000 files. Also make sure to include the swish default
stop words. This helps a bit.
Your system manager might be able to allocate/configure the system so that
processes are allowed a larger memory space.

Subject: [SWISH-E] swish-e dumping core when indexing large file sets
I am trying to index a very large set of text and htm files on an AIX
box. Swish-e (1.1) dumps core on large "chunks" of files.
11126 segmentation fault(coredump)
The solution has been to index smaller chunks of files and then to
merge the indexes together.
When merging large index files, swish will dump core also.
Will upgrading to the 1.3.2 version of Swish-e remedy this? If not,
is there another solution?
