Good point!

I have to confess that I have not used Swish-E for more than a few hundred 
documents so far. I imagine that with a few thousand documents, the 
indexing time differential between file and http methods is really 
noticable.

Chris Humphries <ChrisJMH@vermilion99.freeserve.co.uk> a ecrit :

| I don't find the indexing too slow - I know how slow the Internet can be.

But you forgot the http server calls. If you put away the net response
time, file access cost file access while http access cost server call +
file access + server response. So http method is always slower even on the
same machine.
