in thread Running SuperSearch off a fast full-text index.

So maybe a reasonable solution would be:
  • a separate mod_perl search server, which takes search requests from the web server and returns (eg) an XML or Soap list of IDs
  • each child process checks (eg) a last_cache_update file once a minute to decide whether to reload the caches or not

    Yes, that'll work. Tip: if you're fetching docs from a DB rather than from the index, you may want to turn off stored and vectorized for your fields to save disk space, though that will prevent you from using KinoSearch's built-in Highlighter. Those properties are on by default because disk space is cheap and stuff should be easy.
