Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-998) BooleanQuery.setMaxClauseCount(int) is static
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2009 10:23:50 GMT

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-998:
-------------------------------------------


bq. The boolean rewrite is a fairly poor method for multi-term queries. It just doesn't scale
well.

I agree, though I'm unsure how much better constant-score-rewrite mode
scales.  Has anyone tested this?  (Both enumerate N TermDocs, one in
parallel and the other serially).

I think in 3.0 we should make constant-score rewrite the default?
I'll open a separate issue for this.

But, I'm not sure constant-score rewrite helps with the use case
Justus raised: with constant-score rewrite, there's no way to say
"abort the query if it hits too many terms", which the max clause
count would enable.

> BooleanQuery.setMaxClauseCount(int) is static. It does not allow searching in multiple
indices from different threads using different settings. This setting should be probably moved
in to the IndexSearcher.
