Hi all,

I am quite curios about RAMDirectory for indexing lucene keywords because normally “postprocess” takes quite long time.
Do you guys think RAMDirectory would be better/faster option to doing “postprocess” task?

Supposedly, it must be faster to write/gunzip after restoring indexed files from the database after the webapp starts with RAMDirectoy.
Could you share your experience of using RAMDirectory instead of FSDirectly if you are currently using it for improving performance of intermine tasks?
