Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1044) Behavior on hard power shutdown
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2007 17:34:44 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1044:

I modified the CFS sync case to NOT bother syncing the files that go
into the CFS.  I also turned off syncing of segments.gen.  I also
tested on a Windows Server 2003 box.

New patched attached (still a hack just to test performance!) and new
results.  All tests are with the "sync every commit" policy:

||IO System||CFS sync||CFS nosync||CFS % slower||non-CFS sync||non-CFS nosync||non-CFS % slower||
|2 drive RAID0 Windows 2003 Server R2 Enterprise x64|250|244|2.6%|241|241|0.1%|
|ReiserFS 6-drive RAID5 array Linux (|186|166|11.9%|145|142|2.0%|
|EXT3 single internal drive Linux (|160|158|0.9%|142|135|4.8%|
|4 drive RAID0 array Mac Pro (10.4 Tiger)|152|155|-2.4%|149|147|1.3%|
|Win XP Pro laptop, single drive|408|398|2.6%|343|346|-1.1%|
|Mac Pro single external drive|211|209|1.0%|167|149|12.4%|

> When indexing a large number of documents, upon a hard power failure  (e.g. pull the
power cord), the index seems to get corrupted. We start a Java application as an Windows Service,
and feed it documents. In some cases (after an index size of 1.7GB, with 30-40 index segment
.cfs files) , the following is observed.
> The 'segments' file contains only zeros. Its size is 265 bytes - all bytes are zeros.
> The 'deleted' file also contains only zeros. Its size is 85 bytes - all bytes are zeros.
> Before corruption, the segments file and deleted file appear to be correct. After this
corruption, the index is corrupted and lost.
> This is a problem observed in Lucene 1.4.3. We are not able to upgrade our customer deployments
to 1.9 or later version, but would be happy to back-port a patch, if the patch is small enough
and if this problem is already solved.
