Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2056) Should NIOFSDir use direct ByteBuffers?
Date Wed, 16 Jun 2010 09:30:23 GMT

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-2056:
--------------------------------------------

Thanks Steven!  Was this with the above alg (ie, 4 threads doing searching)?

Could you also try the search using NIOFSDirectory?

Also, if possible, it'd be better to test against a larger index -- such super-fast queries
allow the query init cost to unduly impact that results (eg, allocating a direct buffer is
more costly than allocating a non-direct buffer).

> I'm trying to test NRT performance, and noticed when I dump the thread stacks that the
darned threads often seem to be in {{java.nio.Bits.copyToByteArray(Native Method)}}... so
I wondered whether we could/should use direct ByteBuffers, and whether that would gain performance
in general.  We currently just use our own byte[] buffer via BufferedIndexInput.
> It's hard to test since it's likely platform specific, but if it does result in gains
it could be an easy win.
