Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-236) Field collapsing
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 16:57:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12932536#action_12932536
] 

Stephen Weiss commented on SOLR-236:
------------------------------------

Just chiming in on that last comment... we also rely on functional paging and total counts
when collapsing as well.  I once raised the idea of not providing this information in our
search results to my boss and he looked at me like I had 3 heads, it's just not an option.
 In most of the patches on this ticket we could get this data, but for some it seemed like
eliminating totals and paging wasn't a big deal and provided a significant performance boost.
 I can understand the reasons for not including this for every collapsed query (if you don't
need the totals or paging then the performance boost is nice), but if there was a way we could
have an option to turn this on or off (even with the performance hit, having it is better
than not being able to collapse at all), maybe that could help keep everyone happy.  I remember
it only was a difference of 5 or 6 lines of code either way.

> This patch include a new feature called "Field collapsing".
> "Used in order to collapse a group of results with similar value for a given field to
a single entry in the result set. Site collapsing is a special case of this, where all results
for a given web site is collapsed into one or two entries in the result set, typically with
an associated "more documents from this site" link. See also Duplicate detection."
> http://www.fastsearch.com/glossary.aspx?m=48&amid=299
> The implementation add 3 new query parameters (SolrParams):
> "collapse.field" to choose the field used to group results
> "collapse.type" normal (default value) or adjacent
> "collapse.max" to select how many continuous results are allowed before collapsing
> TODO (in progress):
> - More documentation (on source code)
> - Test cases
> Two patches:
> - "field_collapsing.patch" for current development version
> - "field_collapsing_1.1.0.patch" for Solr-1.1.0
> P.S.: Feedback and misspelling correction are welcome ;-)
