Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1997) Explore performance of multi-PQ vs single-PQ sorting API

Earwin Burrfoot commented on LUCENE-1997:
-----------------------------------------

bq. though they'd have preferred no limit - "what are you talking about ! I want them all!"
Same here. People searching on a job site don't really care for top 10 vacancies/resumes,
they want eeeeeverything! that matched their requirements. :)

John: on the other hand, we here already have code to merge results coming from different
shards, with stripes, primitives and whistles to appease GC. Might as well reuse it asis to
merge between segments.

> Spinoff from recent "lucene 2.9 sorting algorithm" thread on java-dev,
> where a simpler (non-segment-based) comparator API is proposed that
> gathers results into multiple PQs (one per segment) and then merges
> them in the end.
> I started from John's multi-PQ code and worked it into
> contrib/benchmark so that we could run perf tests.  Then I generified
> the Python script I use for running search benchmarks (in
> contrib/benchmark/sortBench.py).
> The script first creates indexes with 1M docs (based on
> SortableSingleDocSource, and based on wikipedia, if available).  Then
> it runs various combinations:
>   * Index with 20 balanced segments vs index with the "normal" log
>     segment size
>   * Queries with different numbers of hits (only for wikipedia index)
>   * Different top N
>   * Different sorts (by title, for wikipedia, and by random string,
>     random int, and country for the random index)
> For each test, 7 search rounds are run and the best QPS is kept.  The
> script runs singlePQ then multiPQ, and records the resulting best QPS
> for each and produces table (in Jira format) as output.
