LucyX::Remote::SearchServer - Make a Searcher remotely accessible.
my $searcher = Lucy::Search::IndexSearcher->new( index => '/path/to/index' ); my $search_server = LucyX::Remote::SearchServer->new( searcher => $searcher, port => 7890, password => $pass, ); $search_server->serve;
The SearchServer class, in conjunction with SearchClient, makes it possible to run a search on one machine and report results on another.
By aggregating several SearchClients under a PolySearcher, the cost of searching what might have been a prohibitively large monolithic index can be distributed across multiple nodes, each with its own, smaller index.
my $search_server = LucyX::Remote::SearchServer->new( searcher => $searcher, # required port => 7890, # required password => $pass, # required );
Constructor. Takes hash-style parameters.
Open a listening socket on localhost and wait for SearchClients to connect.
