Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1526) For near real-time search, use paged copy-on-write BitVector impl
Date Sat, 07 Nov 2009 14:31:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1526?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12774605#action_12774605
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1526:
--------------------------------------------

Another approach we might take here is to track new deletions using a
sorted tree.  New deletions insert in O(log(N)) time, and then we can
efficiently expose a DocIdSetIterator from that.

Then, every search would have this (if present) folded in as a "not"
clause/filter.

Only near real-time readers would have this.

And then, somehow, periodically that tree would have to be merged in
to the real deleted docs if it ever got to big, or, it was time to
commit.

This is a biggish change because suddenly IndexSearcher must be aware
that a given SegmentReader is carrying near-real-time deletions, and 
build a BooleanQuery each time.  Whereas MultiBitVector nicely keeps
all this under-the-hood.

> SegmentReader currently uses a BitVector to represent deleted docs.
> When performing rapid clone (see LUCENE-1314) and delete operations,
> performing a copy on write of the BitVector can become costly because
> the entire underlying byte array must be created and copied. A way to
> make this clone delete process faster is to implement tombstones, a
> term coined by Marvin Humphrey. Tombstones represent new deletions
> plus the incremental deletions from previously reopened readers in
> the current reader. 
> The proposed implementation of tombstones is to accumulate deletions
> into an int array represented as a DocIdSet. With LUCENE-1476,
> SegmentTermDocs iterates over deleted docs using a DocIdSet rather
> than accessing the BitVector by calling get. This allows a BitVector
> and a set of tombstones to by ANDed together as the current reader's
> delete docs. 
> A tombstone merge policy needs to be defined to determine when to
> merge tombstone DocIdSets into a new deleted docs BitVector as too
> many tombstones would eventually be detrimental to performance. A
> probable implementation will merge tombstones based on the number of
> tombstones and the total number of documents in the tombstones. The
> merge policy may be set in the clone/reopen methods or on the
> IndexReader.
