Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2010) Remove segments with all documents deleted in commit/flush/close of IndexWriter instead of waiting until a merge occurs.
Date Wed, 28 Oct 2009 12:48:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2010?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12770917#action_12770917

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-2010:
--------------------------------------------

Note: IndexReader must also do this.

>             Project: Lucene - Java

> I do not know if this is a bug in 2.9.0, but it seems that segments with all documents
deleted are not automatically removed:
> {noformat}
> 4 of 14: name=_dlo docCount=5
>   compound=true
>   hasProx=true
>   numFiles=2
>   size (MB)=0.059
>   diagnostics = {java.version=1.5.0_21, lucene.version=2.9.0 817268P - 2009-09-21 10:25:09,
os=SunOS,
>      os.arch=amd64, java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc., os.version=5.10, source=flush}
>   has deletions [delFileName=_dlo_1.del]
>   test: open reader.........OK [5 deleted docs]
>   test: fields..............OK [136 fields]
>   test: field norms.........OK [136 fields]
>   test: terms, freq, prox...OK [1698 terms; 4236 terms/docs pairs; 0 tokens]
>   test: stored fields.......OK [0 total field count; avg ? fields per doc]
>   test: term vectors........OK [0 total vector count; avg ? term/freq vector fields per
doc]
> {noformat}
> Shouldn't such segments not be removed automatically during the next commit/close of
IndexWriter?
> *Mike McCandless:*
> Lucene doesn't actually short-circuit this case, ie, if every single doc in a given segment
has been deleted, it will still merge it [away] like normal, rather than simply dropping it
immediately from the index, which I agree would be a simple optimization. Can you open a new
issue? I would think IW can drop such a segment immediately (ie not wait for a merge or optimize)
on flushing new deletes.
