I have a 1.7GB index with 440818 documents. Queries that take 0.23846
seconds on my MacBook pro take an indefinite period of time on a
Fedora Core 4 EC2 instance. Five minutes and counting...I'm using
Ferret 0.11.3. I don't see any errors in the logs.

Has anyone ever seen anything like this?

hi erik,
did you find the reason for the difference?

I did. It was a stupid mistake on my part. On linux the index was owned
by root and there was a permission denied error that was caught in an
infinite loop so the query never finished. I think it could be a bug but
I haven't heard from David and have not followed up on it.
