    Use of word_queue for libraries other than xxx01

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20


    The word_queue option has been used to make the ue_01 in the xxx01 libraries initiate multiple processes and to speed them up.
    Are there other libraries for which this should be set? xxx30? xxx10? Or will that not gain me anything useful?


    The problem which this is addressing is numerous bib records with many words. Authority records tend to be fewer and to *not* have so many words. The xxx30 records are even fewer and also not worth worrying about in this context.

    Additional Information

    Article 000025427 ("setenv word_queue Y" in one library sets it for all libraries) discusses a problem with the word_queue option.
