Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1322) Remove synchronization in CompoundFileReader
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2008 13:59:45 GMT


robert engels commented on LUCENE-1322:

This comment is very misleading.

Since there is IO involved, any operation can block, which will lower CPU utilization.

You just need to make sure that the locks control different physical resources.

 This is solved by cloning the base IndexInput.  Synchronization in low level IO classes creates
lock contention on highly multi threaded Lucene installations, so much so that in many cases
the CPU utilization never reaches the maximum without using something like ParallelMultiSearcher.
