[ale] 16 Gigs of RAM and still swapping!



It's a proprietary document indexing tool.

I'm trying to index about 400 GB of MS Exchange EDB files.

Fortunately the app runs in Fedora which is pretty cool.  I've been up
to meet the developers and they are all long time unix/linux guys.

Oh, and even if it takes 12 or 18 hours because of the swapping, that
is still massively fast compared to the other tools I've seen.  the
trouble is the algorithm they use calls for massive amounts of ram.
