Is it possible to get some sort of overview regarding the way ONLINE indices are created and used in neo4j?
I am importing a large number of items (order of magnitude of millions) and I was wondering if in the long term it would be worth triggering the indexing manually OR break the data import in batches, to allow the indices to include the latest items loaded (?).
The specific questions that I have are:
Is it possible to manually trigger the indexing process? (So that it starts working in the background earlier than it would be scheduled).
Are the indices block or incremental? So, do indices need to operate on a block of data to be more efficient or do they operate incrementally?
Is there any list that outlines what sort of indices are used for specific data types? (e.g. the spatial indices are space filling curves. Is it safe to assume that anything else is probably a B-Tree?)
All the best
