I was attempting to use swishe for an index, but it could not handle the
70+GB of data that I needed it to. MySQL does handle that, and it has nice
querying capabilities. It is considerably slower, but not too bad in most
cases(only 1-3 seconds usually). Since I've been using it though my Linux
box has had nothing but troubles with its SCSI driver. I think I might be
going back to glimpse -- it has bugs and many limitations, but it works
reliably and it can handle the data I need it to. I'm looking forward to
when 64-bit swishe comes out though!

Subject: [SWISH-E] mysql and swishe
I'm hoping for some feedback from swish-e users out there who are also
I know that some folks use swish-e to index mysql tables for searching.
Is there a reason you do that instead of just querying the database
directly? Is there a big performance difference?
I am just starting to research a significant mysql project and haven't
used it before. I've toyed off and on with using swish-e as the backend
instead of mysql, but that seems to be advantageous only for read-only
searching, not doing any kind interaction that would require saving data.
Horror/success stories welcome.
