Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1076) Allow MergePolicy to select non-contiguous merges
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 16:03:14 GMT

Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-1076:
------------------------------------

Oh. Thanks for correcting me. In that case, I take what I said back.

I think this together w/ LUCENE-1750 can really help speed up segment merges in certain scenarios.
Will wait for you to come back to it :)

> I started work on this but with LUCENE-1044 I won't make much progress
> on it for a while, so I want to checkpoint my current state/patch.
> For backwards compatibility we must leave the default MergePolicy as
> selecting contiguous merges.  This is necessary because some
> applications rely on "temporal monotonicity" of doc IDs, which means
> even though merges can re-number documents, the renumbering will
> always reflect the order in which the documents were added to the
> index.
> Still, for those apps that do not rely on this, we should offer a
> MergePolicy that is free to select the best merges regardless of
> whether they are continuguous.  This requires fixing IndexWriter to
> accept such a merge, and, fixing LogMergePolicy to optionally allow
> it the freedom to do so.
