Sounds like you want to tokenise CONTENTS, if you are not already doing so.

Then you could simply have:

It was how I was implementing the search.

I am using a boolean query. Prior to the 7GB index, I was searching over a
150MB index that consist of a very small part of the bigger index. I was
able to set my BooleanQuery to
BooleanQuery.setMaxClauseCount(Integer.MAX_VALUE) and that worked fine.
But I think that's the cause of my problem with this bigger index.
Commenting that out, I get an TooManyClause Exception. A typical query
would look something like this:


BooleanQuery q = new BooleanQuery();

WildcardQuery wc1 = new WildcardQuery("CONTENTS", "*white*"); WildcardQuery
wc2 = new WildcardQuery("CONTENTS", "*hard*"); WildcardQuery wc3 = new
WildcardQuery("CONTENTS", "*hat*"); q.add(wc1, BooleanClause.Occur.MUST);
q.add(wc2, BooleanClause.Occur.MUST); q.add(wc3, BooleanClause.Occur.MUST);

TermQuery t1 = new TermQuery("COMPANY_CODE", "u1"); q.add(t1,

TermQuery t2 = new TermQuery("LANGUAGE", "enu"); q.add(t2,
BooleanClause.Occur.MUST); .

I take it this is not the most optimal way about this.

So that leads me to my next question... What is the most optimal way about

2GB limitation only exists when you want to put them to memory in 32bits
Our index size is larger than 13 giga bytes, and it works fine.
I think it must be something error in your design. You can use Luke to see
what happened in your index.

I have a 7GB index (about 45 fields per document X roughly 5.5 million

The index is optimized. Performing a search on this index will just
"hang" when performing the search (wild card query with a sort). At
first the CPU usage is 100%, then drops down to 50% after a minute or
so, and then no CPU utilization... but the thread is still trying to
perform the search. I've tried this in my J2EE app and in a main
program. Is this due to the 2GB limitation of the 32bit OS (I didn't
realize the index would be this big... just let it run over the weekend).

If this is due to the 2GB limitation of the 32bit OS and since I have
this 7GB index built already (and optimized), is there a way to split
this into 2GB indices w/o having to re-index? Or is this due to
another factor?
