Using Lucene in a multi-server environment

Hi,

One of my concerns regarding using Alfresco is how to reconcile the Lucene indexes of multiple servers.  Lets say that my Alfresco implementation uses 3 app servers, each of which separately runs Lucene.  Not being a Lucene wizard, I'm not sure how best to replicate the index updates to all servers, so that search results are consistent.  Should a DB store be used for the index instead of a separate file store for each server, or perhaps a shared filesystem store for the index?

Have you experimented with this at all?

Thanks,
Brad
