Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1604) Stop creating huge arrays to represent the absense of field norms
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 14:38:15 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1604:

bq. Setting disableFakeNorms transitively isn't really needed because MultiSegmentReader doesn't
make any calls to the subreaders that would cause it to create it's own fake norms

But since we score per-segment, TermScorer would ask each SegmentReader (in the MultiSegmentReader)
for its norms?  So I think the sub readers need to know the setting.

bq. Any thoughts on whether we need this or not?

I think we do need each class implementing clone() and reopen() to properly carryover this

> Creating and keeping around huge arrays that hold a constant value is very inefficient
both from a heap usage standpoint and from a localility of reference standpoint. It would
be much more efficient to use null to represent a missing norms table.
