Swapping indexes

From: Brad Miele <bmiele(at)>

I am looking for a good solution for swapping indexes on my webservers.

Currently, i rsync 4 1+ Gig indexes(and prop files) to a temporary area,
then I run a script which tests each index, and as long as there is no
error, it copies it to the live index directory, and then it restarts the
webserver. The problem is that while the index is being copied to live,
searches start to hang, and i get some huge http processes.

I can stop the webserver before each copy, but i am really looking for a
less harsh mechanism.
