[EP-tech] Re: DB slow down.



In theory, the indexer has morphed over the years into a general task queue, and so some of the things in it may not be text indexing.  I believe that the generation of thumbnails is handled this way.  Bazaar packages can use this to schedule the triggering of event plugins.

I'm certainly no expert on the intricacies of it all, but I do know that, for instance, the IRUS plugin uses the event queue to record when it was unable to contact the main IRUS servers to report a download, so it can attempt to do so at a later date.
