Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-639) [PATCH] Slight performance improvement for readVInt() of IndexInput
Date Mon, 07 Aug 2006 09:39:15 GMT
    [ ] 
Johan Stuyts commented on LUCENE-639:

Yonik, I agree that instead of using artificial data sets instead of real ones might influence
the results. Getting my hands on real, large data is going to be difficult.

I also think that you drew your conclusion too fast. You only ran the tests on a few JVMs.
As you can see from the test results that I submitted, the differences between JVMs are significant.

There is no perfect algorithm which runs better on all JVMs, but I think that algorithms that
run better on most JVMs exist.

> By unrolling the loop in readVInt() I was able to get a slight, about 1.8 %, performance
improvement for this method. The test program invoked the method over 17 million times on
each run.
> I ran the performance tests on:
> - Windows XP Pro SP2
> - Sun JDK 1.5.0_07
> - YourKit 5.5.4
> - Lucene trunk
