The glimpseserver program


Starting with Harvest Version 1.1, the Glimpse system comes with an auxiliary server called glimpseserver, which allows indexes to be read into a process and kept in memory. This avoids the added cost of reading the index and starting a large process for each search. glimpseserver is automatically started each time you run the Broker, or reindex the Broker's corpus. If you do not want to run glimpseserver, then set GlimpseServer-Host to ``false'' in your broker.conf.
