Is anyone successfully using acts_as_ferret with Ferret 0.11

Hi all,

I upgraded from Ferret 0.11.3 to Ferret 0.11.4 because I was getting
intermittent segfaults that seemed to be due to a bug which was fixed
(changeset 749).

Unfortunately, 0.11.4 + acts_as_ferret seems to be a bad combination.
I’m
getting the some “fs_store/File Not Found Error occured at
<except.c>:117”
which was reported in the “Constant 0.11.4 Errors” thread
[http://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg03136.html]
when
aaf tries to update the index after a record is saved.

My logs show that about 1400 fields were added to the Ferret indices
before I noticed the problem and I only got this error during the
concurrent updates (about 2% of all updates)

Does anyone have this combo working? Perhaps one of the people in the
original thread resolved the problem? I apologize for not doing more
research - I just want to make sure that this isn’t already solved
before
I go off and dig into it.

Thanks very much,
Casey

It’s working great for us. We just launched this site:
http://www.taftlaw.com. That site uses Ferret 0.11.4 on Ruby 1.8.6,
Rails
1.2.3, and acts_as_ferret with the DRb server.

Thanks,

How big is your index?

There are seven indexed models with a total size of 2.5M. There isn’t a
ton
of concurrent updating, though we’ve had some with no trouble yet.

Thanks,

Doug

Please use the DRb server in Multi-Process-Scenarios, and start to worry
about it’s performance when you are sure it really is the DRb server
that slows your app down :wink:

Thanks! The Solr / aaf DRb server benchmarks look good to me - I
shouldn’t
have been worried. Also, I just noticed the “[187] Improved DRb server
index rebuild handling by keeping index versions” changeset - that looks
GREAT!

Also, someone asked about the size of my index. It’s small - 7 MB. I
love
Ferret - user contributed data is a big part of my site and I’d don’t
know
where I’d be if I didn’t have a good search engine to drive “Did you
mean?..” suggestions and help prevent duplication.
