Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1959) Index Splitter
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2009 10:03:31 GMT

Andrzej Bialecki  commented on LUCENE-1959:
-------------------------------------------

I'm of a split mind about this splitter ;) in the sense that I'm not sure how useful it is
- if your input is an optimized index then it has just 1 segment, so this tool won't be able
to split it, right?

AFAIK a similar functionality can be implemented also using two other methods that would work
on indexes with any number of segments: one method is trivial, based on a "delete/IndexWriter.addIndexes/undeletAll"
loop that requires multiple passes over input data, the other would use the same method as
SegmentMerger uses, i.e. working with FieldsWriter, FormatPostings*Consumer, TermVectorsWriter,
etc. for a single-pass splitting.

So I guess I'm -0 on this index splitting method, because I think we can do it better.

> If an index has multiple segments, this tool allows splitting those segments into separate
directories.
