|: Can I help? I always seize opportunities to learn something I like, like linux server/database stuff!
Thanks for your offer. It's really not that much of a server/database problem. It's just that I need to optimize the code for the index generation. At the moment, I do parse all the messages which are stored in individual XML files and transform them into a programmatic representation which is then used to built the index. The whole parsing step is just too long so I have resolved to keep the results on disk in order to not loose any work and enable the index generation to be resumeable. It already is if it gets interrupted after the parsing step but now I need to do better.
What is your background in computing? I already saw that you are using the "right OS", but do you also do programming?
