Subject Re: FYI, some discussion on Lucene HDFS index read in Solr
Date Sun, 18 Aug 2013 14:41:56 GMT
Hey Patrick,

I commented on that issue.  To date I have not tried the short circuit
reads in Blur.  I have in HBase but they do some interesting things to make
the short circuit reads as effective as possible.  Like they disable the
built-in CRC checks in HDFS (during the read) and do the calculation
themselves because they have a put the CRC checks in-line with the data.
 That way it's only a single IO operation, but it does force you to read
more information than necessary in certain circumstances, but that's the
case for the HDFS implementation as well.
