Alfresco reindexer issue!

Hello all,

Recently our Alfresco install crashed, which corrupted the Lucene indexes.
So I configured Alfresco (in repository.properties) to do a FULL Lucene reindex on the next Alfresco start.

Alfresco started just fine and started reindexing as expeced. However, after more than 24 hours, the indexer still is running.

The first few hours the server was under high load (15 and more) and this suddenly dropped down to exactly 1. With that drop came a drop of I/O activity as well.

From the logs:

01:47:01,674 INFO  [org.alfresco.repo.node.index.FullIndexRecoveryComponent]    10 % complete.
04:08:22,419 INFO  [org.alfresco.repo.node.index.FullIndexRecoveryComponent]    20 % complete.

Now I'm wondering: is the indexer still running (the Linux process lists suggest so, as Java is constantly consuming 1 CPU core) and is this behaviour normal?

Some info:
Alfresco 3.2 CE
CentOS 5.4 64 bit server, 16GB of memory, 4 CPU cores
JDK 1.6, Tomat 6.0.26
About 250000 PDF files in Alfresco

Thanks!
