Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1536) if a filter can support random access API, we should use it
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 12:45:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1536?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12699680#action_12699680
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1536:
--------------------------------------------

OK, if we do choose to couple, maybe we should name it "useRandomAccess()"?

Another filter optimization that'd be nice to get in is to somehow "know" that a filter has
pre-incorporated deleted documents.  This way, once we have a solution for the "push filter
down to all TermScorers", we could have it only check the filter and not also deleted docs.
 (This is one of the optimizations in LUCENE-1594).

We might eventually want/need some sort of external FilterManager that would handle this (ie,
convert a filter to sparse vs random-access as appropriate, multiply in deleted docs, handle
caching, etc).

> I ran some performance tests, comparing applying a filter via
> random-access API instead of current trunk's iterator API.
> This was inspired by LUCENE-1476, where we realized deletions should
> really be implemented just like a filter, but then in testing found
> that switching deletions to iterator was a very sizable performance
> hit.
> Some notes on the test:
>   * Index is first 2M docs of Wikipedia.  Test machine is Mac OS X
>     10.5.6, quad core Intel CPU, 6 GB RAM, java 1.6.0_07-b06-153.
>   * I test across multiple queries.  1-X means an OR query, eg 1-4
>     means 1 OR 2 OR 3 OR 4, whereas +1-4 is an AND query, ie 1 AND 2
>     AND 3 AND 4.  "u s" means "united states" (phrase search).
>   * I test with multiple filter densities (0, 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 75, 90,
>     95, 98, 99, 99.99999 (filter is non-null but all bits are set),
>     100 (filter=null, control)).
>   * Method high means I use random-access filter API in
>     IndexSearcher's main loop.  Method low means I use random-access
>     filter API down in SegmentTermDocs (just like deleted docs
>     today).
>   * Baseline (QPS) is current trunk, where filter is applied as iterator up
>     "high" (ie in IndexSearcher's search loop).
