sorry for all these unclear queries.

i turned of WAL on both the doc and index table.

in my system all documents have a UUID (assigned before it comes into the system) i just use
this UUID as the rowkey. so duplicates basically means documents with the same id, even if
the contents are the same.
for a poem like Mary had a little lamb, the whole poem would probably be counted as a single
document. if such a   document comes, the word counts of the words in the poem would increment
by their count in the poem.
if multiple docs have the same content but different id, i just treat them as different docs
and do the increments.

The simplest way is to record the doc ID and a check sum for the doc. If the doc you are processing
matches... You can simply do NOOP for the lines in the doc. (This isn't the fastest, but its
