'Normalized' folders in data_index RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I really need to know what the folders in data_index called "node_host_name".normalized.xxxxxxx are for, where node_host_name is the host name of the node and xxxx are digits. What is their function and why are they generated. When i rebuild the data_index they do not get regenerated. 

    The only thing i can see in the documention for normalize is for the normalizedirectory option for document ranking. Is it a result of this?

    rebuilding the data_index takes half a day for the nodes partitions. I would like to know if they are active parts of the index or whether they are produced for transition between some state (i.e. can be removed).

    The reason I need to remove these are due to drive space issues which cannot be avoided for the next year.

    I really really need to know asap :)
