Thanks a lot.

Hi Stephane,

I had this situation a while ago when working on a Lucene related project.

The solution I did was to use multiple indexes. You can also merge them.

Best Regards
Aneesh

Sorry, Lucene in Action 2 only briefly touches on this [good] topic.

A single Lucene index can scale quite large, depending on your performance requirements.

Beyond that you'll have to break the index across multiple machines. Solr has support for this out of the box. Katta does as well.
