Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1591) Enable bzip compression in benchmark
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 12:26:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1591?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12698753#action_12698753
] 

Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-1591:
------------------------------------

We can turn them off, or wrap new Benchmark with try-catch Exception, logging a failed task.
Alternatively, we can add an 'exclude' list which will define tasks that should be discarded
by the test, and add WriteLineDocTask to it.

However, if you think those are useless, i.e. we test .alg parsing elsewhere (and I agree
these tests don't add much value), then I agree we should remove them, rather than working
hard to mask the test's limitations.

> bzip compression can aid the benchmark package by not requiring extracting bzip files
(such as enwiki) in order to index them. The plan is to add a config parameter bzip.compression=true/false
and in the relevant tasks either decompress the input file or compress the output file using
the bzip streams.
> It will add a dependency on ant.jar which contains two classes similar to GZIPOutputStream
and GZIPInputStream which compress/decompress files using the bzip algorithm.
> bzip is known to be superior in its compression performance to the gzip algorithm (~20%
better compression), although it does the compression/decompression a bit slower.
> I wil post a patch which adds this parameter and implement it in LineDocMaker, EnwikiDocMaker
and WriteLineDoc task. Maybe even add the capability to DocMaker or some of the super classes,
so it can be inherited by all sub-classes.
