I have spent a lot of time iterating through and indexing many SVN repos in FishEye. Several of them have taken days to index. Now I want to make some changes to improve the SVN Symbolic Rules. This will require a complete re-index and I want to test it on a test server. When I get it right on a test server, can I copy the index data over to a production server to reduce the production repository's outage time? If so, how do I do that?
Yes, you can. See the https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/How+do+I+Avoid+Long+Reindex+Times+When+I+Upgrade#HowdoIAvoidLongReindexTimesWhenIUpgrade-Howtoreindexasinglerepositoryonatestserver procedure for instructions how to copy the data from your test server to production server once you find optimal settings.
Remember to configure symbolic rules on the production instance before you copy the index though, otherwise all new changesets would get indexed with different symbolic rules.
Hope that helps,
