Description Tomás Cohen Arazi 2016-04-01 18:45:41 UTC
The indexing daemon is a really cool feature, that there's no reason to have disabled by default. It allows end-users experience almost real-time indexing (with the default 5 seconds frecquency, which could even be lowered). And we have it disabled by default.

It prevents queuing too many reindexing actions, and has really low footprint (compared to the cronjob version).

Bug 16190: Enable the indexer daemon by default

This patch enables the indexer daemon by default on packages installs.
It does so by setting USE_INDEXER_DAEMON=yes on the /etc/default/koha-common
file. It does remove now irrelevant comments from that file.

This patch is straightforward to review. If is just a matter of choosing
to enable or not to enable by default.

Kind regards

PS: Let end users rejoice this so far hidden feature :-D

It looks like these changes have already been made in master! Is this patch no longer needed?
Comment 6 Tomás Cohen Arazi 2016-04-29 14:39:10 UTC
This has already been pushed by Brendan on April 19th.

So will be available in 16.05 :-D

See bug 16814 for some problems caused by the indexer daemon being on by default.
