Swoogle index rebuilt

March 26th, 2007

Users of the Swoogle Semantic Web search engine users may notice that the system suddenly seems to know about more semantic web documents. For some months now (more than I want to admit) we’ve not rebuilt the Lucene index that we use to retrieve classes, properties and documents based on key words in their URIs. Swoogle has continued to find new documents and revisions to old ones, add them to the archive, extract their metadata and add it to its database. It just didn’t index the data in the IR component. The reason was that we were perilously close to being out of space on Swoogle’s main storage system. We’ve added a new disk and this has allowed us to rebuild the index. So, you may see more and newer results for simple Swoogle queries.
