[Archivesspace_Users_Group] strategies for piecemeal re-index

Hey everyone,

At some point, our index got totally jacked. Unfortunately, our database is way too big to be able to do a full re-index overnight and we’re reluctant to leave it going over the weekend in case something goes wrong.

Also, our Aeon requesting service relies on a webservice built on top of ArchivesSpace, so we can’t have the index unavailable for too long, even if it’s not during normal working hours.

Has anyone played with re-indexing a bit at a time by deleting records from indexer_state? Is this a reliable way to fix index problems? Does anyone have thoughts on other strategies?
