Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1821) Weight.scorer() not passed doc offset for "sub reader"
Date Sun, 23 Aug 2009 16:52:59 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1821:

bq. Using a per-segment cache will cause some significant performance loss when performing
faceting, as it requires creating the facets for each segment, and then merging them (this
results in a good deal of extra object overhead/memory overhead/more work where faceting on
the multi-reader does not see this)

This is a good point... Yonik, how [in general!] is Solr handling the cutover to per-segment,
for faceting?

> Now that searching is done on a per segment basis, there is no way for a Scorer to know
the "actual" doc id for the document's it matches (only the relative doc offset into the segment)
> If using caches in your scorer that are based on the "entire" index (all segments), there
is now no way to index into them properly from inside a Scorer because the scorer is not passed
the needed offset to calculate the "real" docid
> suggest having Weight.scorer() method also take a integer for the doc offset
> Abstract Weight class should have a constructor that takes this offset as well as a method
to get the offset
> All Weights that have "sub" weights must pass this offset down to created "sub" weights
> Details on workaround:
> In order to work around this, you must do the following:
> * Subclass IndexSearcher
> * Add "int getIndexReaderBase(IndexReader)" method to your subclass
> * during Weight creation, the Weight must hold onto a reference to the passed in Searcher
(casted to your sub class)
> * during Scorer creation, the Scorer must be passed the result of YourSearcher.getIndexReaderBase(reader)
> * Scorer can now rebase any collected docids using this offset
> Example implementation of getIndexReaderBase():
> {code}
> // NOTE: more efficient implementation can be done if you cache the result if gatherSubReaders
in your constructor
> public int getIndexReaderBase(IndexReader reader) {
>   if (reader == getReader()) {
>     return 0;
>   } else {
>     List readers = new ArrayList();
>     gatherSubReaders(readers);
>     Iterator iter = readers.iterator();
>     int maxDoc = 0;
>     while (iter.hasNext()) {
>       IndexReader r = (IndexReader);
>       if (r == reader) {
>         return maxDoc;
>       } 
>       maxDoc += r.maxDoc();
>     } 
>   }
>   return -1; // reader not in searcher
> }
> {code}
> Notes:
> * This workaround makes it so you cannot serialize your custom Weight implementation
