Allows you to force an immediate flush to disk from the index cache. Sending this command to the index port instructs the engine to flush to disk and any documents currently held in the index cache are committed to disk.

This is only required when DelayedSync is set to TRUE in your configuration file, and you believe documents have been processed but are not yet available for search. That documents remain in the index cache is evident when the number of document sections is higher than the number of committed slots in the action=getstatus output.

Note these documents are flushed anyway when the MaxSyncDelay period you have configured expires.



This command uses port 16001 to instruct the IDOL server on host Hume to flush all files to disk.
