Ok, so it's been running since I posted this message, no crash, non stop, 24/7.
It's been indexing for for over two weeks now.
The question remains the same. How long will this indexing take and how much
drive space will this take using the following;
The bandwidth is a full T1, point to point, the indexing has full use of the T1.
The machine is a dual 350Mhz with 8GB's of memory.
I'm running 'index -N 25'.
I'm running aspseek pretty much out of the box, configured almost as it comes,
with few changes. This was a trial run but I didn't realise it would take this
Finally, I am indexing 10028 different sites, not URL's, again, with the basic
The process so far, has used up 45GB's of drive space.
And again, I know that no one knows for sure but there must be some users out
there who have/are run/running a similar indexing process. I'm not looking for
anything exact, just *some* idea on how much longer this will take and how much
more drive space it will use up.
Thanks for ANY help you can offer me on this :).
