Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2232) Use VShort to encode positions
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2010 14:36:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2232?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12828633#action_12828633

Yonik Seeley commented on LUCENE-2232:
--------------------------------------

A branch mispredict can be more costly, depending on the context.
Cache misses are a major factor, and allowing speculative execution further ahead in the code
(by correctly predicting branches) one can overlap those cache misses.

The complexity of modern hardware increases the need to do performance tests in context (unless
it's clearly a win of course).
