If i distribute this to an indexer which does NOT have an index called index_A, what will be the performance issue with this? Will there be a significant/negligible hit on the indexer performance?
I ask, because what If I distributed 10,000 searches like this to an indexer, where only 100 out of the 10,000 would actually find the index they are looking for? - Would I still lock up the indexer from a performance point of view, even though 9,900 of the 10,000 searches cannot even find the index they are looking for on the indexer?
Performance hit of the search is negligible because there will be no index on the indexer so the very first thing that is checked ( indexes.conf ) will fail. Such an approach should be fine from this aspect.
