Subject [jira] Updated: (JCR-974) Manage Lucene FieldCaches per index segment
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2007 16:12:26 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-974?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Christoph Kiehl updated JCR-974:

    Attachment: patch.txt

This is a first patch which uses a FieldCache per index segment. To make this work we had
to use our own implementation of FieldCache.StringIndex which does not keep an array of sort
indexes for the document, but which keeps an array terms associated which each document. This
of course uses more memory and there need to be some performance/scaling tests done.
We had to modify SearchIndex.CombinedIndexReader and CachingMultiReader to allow access to
the underlying IndexReaders because those IndexReaders are used as cache keys in SharedFieldCache.
I'm not absolutely satisfied about this solution, because SharedFieldSortComparator has to
know that there is a CombinedIndexReader and currently even assumes it.
Performance wise we achieved a speed up by factor 5-15 in our current application where we
have got a lot of write operations and more than 1000000 nodes . For read-only repositories
this patch slightly degrades performance by a factor of about 2.

> Jackrabbit uses an IndexSearcher which searches on a single IndexReader which is most
likely to be an instance of CachingMultiReader. On every search that does sorting or range
queries a FieldCache is populated and associated with this instance of a CachingMultiReader.
On successive queries which operate on this CachingMultiReader you will get a tremendous speedup
for queries which can reuse  those associated FieldCache instances.
> The problem is that Jackrabbit creates a new CachingMultiReader _everytime_ one of the
underlying indexes are modified. This means if you just change _one_ item in the repository
you will need to rebuild all those FieldCaches because the existing FieldCaches are associated
with the old instance of CachingMultiReader.
> This does not only lead to slow search response times for queries which contains range
queries or are sorted by a field but also leads to massive memory consumption (depending on
the size of your indexes) because there might be multiple instances of CachingMultiReaders
in use if you have a scenario where a lot of queries and item modifications are executed concurrently.
> The goal is to keep those FieldCaches as long as possible.
