Swish-e has helper program which spider the single host. Can

We use swish-e to index local files, not web sites, so I can't venture
any opinion on the crawling bit as such. But what I can say is that the
core technologies of indexing and searching scale pretty well - we've
got a about 2 million content pages indexed, adding about 10 000 daily,
and the searches are fast (sub-second). 


We do play around a bit to speed up the indexing; during the day, as we
receive new files to index, we index into a 'daily' index file. A
nightly job merges the daily file into a main 'master' index file.
Searches are done against all the files.
