Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1313) Realtime Search
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2009 08:54:12 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1313:

Jason, your last patch looks like it's taking the "flush first to RAM Dir" approach I just
described as the next step (on the java-dev thread), right?  Which is great!

So this has no external dependencies, right?  And it simply layers on top of LUCENE-1516.

I'd be very interested to compare (benchmark) this approach vs solely LUCENE-1516.

Could we change this class so that instead of taking a Transaction object, holding adds &
deletes, it simply mirrors IndexWriter's API?  Ie, I'd like to decouple the performance optimization
of "let's flush small segments ithrough a RAMDir first" from the transactional semantics of
"I process a transaction atomically, and lock out other thread's transactions".  Ie, the transactional
restriction could/should layer on top of this performance optimization for near-realtime search?

 It is difficult to replicate using other methods because while the document may easily be
serialized, the analyzer cannot.
> I think this issue can hold realtime benchmarks which include indexing and searching
