Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2575) Concurrent byte and int block implementations
Date Wed, 29 Sep 2010 03:19:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2575?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12916001#action_12916001
] 

Jason Rutherglen commented on LUCENE-2575:
------------------------------------------

I guess another possible solution is to do away with interleaved slices altogether and simply
allocate byte[]s per term and chain them together.  Then we would not need to worry about
concurrency with slicing.  This would certainly make debugging easier however it'd add 8 bytes
(for the object pointer) per term, somewhat negating the parallel array cutover.  Perhaps
it's just a price we'd want to pay.  That and we'd probably still need a unique posting upto
array per reader.

> The current *BlockPool implementations aren't quite concurrent.
> We really need something that has a locking flush method, where
> flush is called at the end of adding a document. Once flushed,
> the newly written data would be available to all other reading
> threads (ie, postings etc). I'm not sure I understand the slices
> concept, it seems like it'd be easier to implement a seekable
> random access file like API. One'd seek to a given position,
> then read or write from there. The underlying management of byte
> arrays could then be hidden?
