Over the weekend I experienced an issue where adding a search to the
rsyslog client cookbook rather than using a statically set rsyslog
server hostname (http://friendpaste.com/53XqkjYJllP7unEXsAiCnO) caused
a huge growth in bandwidth
(http://img245.yfrog.com/i/deployerifeth0day.png/) and load on my chef
server. I spoke with Adam and Barry on IRC regarding it and it was
deemed that it was likely something wonky with ferret causing the
indexes to grow, results appending to themselves iirc. By the time I
cleaned things out and switched back to my original code the index size
What I am interested in is figuring out if this is something unusual
with ferret and simply to do my set of circumstances or if this has
happened to others. Additionally if it’s something that I am doing
wrong that caused the problem in the first place. I understand there
are changes coming to search but would like to know how to best use the
current system caveats and all.
Advice, comments, suggestions are appreciated.
