Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1720) TimeLimitedIndexReader and associated utility class
Date Thu, 11 Feb 2010 13:52:28 GMT


Mark Harwood commented on LUCENE-1720:

Agreed, might be useful to provide boolean response to the progress method - a kind of "how
am I doing?" check.
We can always provide a convenience wrapper method which throws an exception : ATM.blowUpIfNotGoingFastEnough(float

Re TimeLimitingCollector - agreed, you really do need to protect ATM/start/stop calls in the
same try...finally block.
Maybe ATM could have a "start" method variant that takes an additional "alreadyRunningSince"
argument as opposed to the existing assumption that the activity is starting right now. The
first "collect" could then call this with a timestamp initialised in the constructor.
Even then, there is the issue of where to put the "stop" call - collector has no "close" call
to signal the end of the activity.

Doesn't seem like TimeLimitingCollector can be based on the same ATM code. Shame.

> An alternative to TimeLimitedCollector that has the following advantages:
> 1) Any reader activity can be time-limited rather than just single searches e.g. the
document retrieve phase.
> 2) Times out faster (i.e. runaway queries such as fuzzies detected quickly before last
"collect" stage of query processing)
> Uses new utility timeout class that is independent of IndexReader.
> Initial contribution includes a performance test class but not had time as yet to work
up a formal Junit test.
> TimeLimitedIndexReader is coded as JDK1.5 but can easily be undone.
