Can anyone with experience of implmementing / running a Lucene.NET solution recommend rough system specifications for a live environment. Is it processor, memory or disk intensive. Does it only use a single processor, so having a box with multiprocessors / cores wouldn't return much benefit, etc?
This is for a greenfields development so there is no relevent existing system to base usage from. It is expected that the data we would be indexing would contain 200K documents (customers) and would contain the standard stuff like name, contact details and a couple of addresses - so each record wouldn't be too big.
Helpfully we need to start our hardware recommendations before we really have chance to create any test solution - and the hardware that currently exists would make any tests difficult to compare / draw conclusion from.
