move to a cheaper vps
moved to a VPS with 2 cores/4 GB RAM...serve & crawl is currently running, we'll see if indexing works too
index needs more than 4 GB RAM...even when running alone on the machine (
serve has been stopped) ... dammit
memory usage stays under 1 GB (at least when starting indexing) when running
on the dedicated server memory usage peaks at 4.5 GB when the index process is started and settles round 2.5 GB during index update - looks like the whole whoosh index is loaded into memory on startup
Turns out that the netcup vps is too slow. Currently it takes almost 2 seconds to add a page to the index...this is not acceptable.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
