Benchmarks "A number of search engines are available for the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, many based around the open source Lucene search engine. It would be tremendous if we could adopt one of these search engines for the Gnome platform, so we can provide the type of integrated search experience for our users that they really need, irrespective of which distort they are using. So to help in this assessment we have carried out a comparison of four different Unix based indexers [.pdf]."

memory usage

It may look strange that the reviewer went as far as using a November 8th cvs release for one indexer and instead used a several months old release of beagle (when a beagle release happened on November 1st). It may not be malice, but just ignorance on his part.
Anyway, beagle had many fixes for memory usage in the releases following 0.2.7 and some more even after November 1st: the actual memory usage of bagle is much lower now.
