Ferret index file(s)

I am running version 3.2 of ferret and would like to upgrade to a more
current version. will my existing 3.2 index files be compatible?

AK

Alan,

are you sure about the version number? the current version of ferret is
0.11.4 … so i’m not sure you’ve got the right number …

check it via “gem list ferret”.

ok it is actually version 0.3.2

You’ll have to rebuild your indexes, as 0.3.2 still used the lucene
compatible index format.

cheers,
Jens

check it via “gem list ferret”.

ok thanks.
does anyone know if there is a reasonable way to rebuild the indexes
with
Ferret or some Ferret utility?
also is the threading and performance better with version 0.11.4?
0.3.2 seems to take a lot of CPU time for searches!!

cheers,
Alan

The normal way would be to rebuild your index completely, from the
source data. That eliminates the need to do any conversion.

A simple call to Model.rebuild_index should do the job.

to be MORE specific: I would like to convert the Ferret index files to
version 0.11.4 from version 0.3.2 … I want to do this by reading the
index
file values and outputting them to a file … then importing them with
the
newer version and writing out the new index files. is this a good idea?

alan,

no, it’s not :slight_smile: Just run the same process, that generated the data
in the first place… You won’t get all information you need from the
ferret index… and no-one here will be able to help you on a ferret
0.3.2 question :slight_smile:

I guess you’re using ferret without AAF? If you use AAF, its simple
to reindex everything… just like Paul said …
