We’re happily using Ferret through acts_as_ferret on a Rails website,
but we have an issue with rebuilding indexes.
The Rails project directories are on an NFS mounted volume and
running Model.rebuld_index there seems to take 60-100 times longer
than it does on a local filesystem (e.g. /tmp).
What we’d like to do is rebuild our indexes in say /tmp, then copy
them back when done to the NFS volume with the Rails directories.
Is there any simple way to get Model.rebuild_index to build indexes
in a different place, or do we need to take another approach?
Thanks in advance,
